Welcome

The Department of Budget and Management is responsible for the preparation of the annual Operating and Capital Budgets. We also monitor the County's departmental expenses and revenues as well as the capital budget, perform management studies and provide fiscal analysis of operations.

Thank you for visiting our web site. As our budget reflects, the government of Rockland County is a very large organization employing around 1,980 people, spending about $741,000,000 a year and serving tens of thousands of our residents on an annual basis. In the Departments of Budget and Finance we believe our role is to administer the financial operations of the County in a legal, accurate and ethical manner but at the same time to be as informative and transparent in our operations as this large organization permits.

We hope that your review of our 2015 Proposed Budget is informative and easy to understand. If, after your review you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to call us at (845) 638-5262 for assistance.
