Budgeting to maintain local infrastructure is an essential function of county government. You must understand your infrastructure needs and maintenance schedule, establish project priorities, and develop sustainable funding mechanisms. Panelists at the MACo Winter Conference session, “Dollars & Sense: Building a Capital Budget,” will share best practices for planning and financing capital projects to meet public infrastructure and facility needs.
