Budgeting and Finance is a required role of the county commission as well as other elected officials and staff. The number and scope of county services have expanded in response to intergovernmental mandates and long devolution trends. The dizzying pace of technology innovations promises long-term efficiencies for county operations, but in the short run, requires a significant financial investment. This course defines the role of the county commission as financial policy makers and related roles of citizens, other elected officials and staff. In addition, this class will address current tips on how to manage the Tax Lid in your county.  


Instructor: Ryan Adkison is the Assistant County Administrator/Finance Director for Butler County. One of his primary duties is crafting the organization’s annual CIP/operating budget, which has won the Government Finance Officers Association’s (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award the past seven years.
