2024-25 Biennial Budget

Budget Community Engagement Survey Results

Pierce County partnered with a communications firm to run an online open house and gather community input on budget priorities using a multi-language survey. This initiative took place from mid-May to late June 2023 and was promoted through various channels, including the County Website, Community Navigators, Printed Flyers, Council Listservs, Board and Commission Listservs, an Executive Blog, and social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and NextDoor.

In the survey, 2,577 individuals in Pierce County participated, primarily targeting those in unincorporated areas. Over 75% of responses came from these regions. In terms of racial and ethnic demographics, 83% identified as White, 6.9% as Two or More Races, and approximately 10% fell into various other categories, including 4% Hispanic or Latino, 2% Black or African American, and 1.7% Asian.

Distinguished Budget Presentation Award

The Pierce County Finance Department has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association for the County’s budget since 1987.

'The award represents a significant achievement by Pierce County,' said Stephen J. Gauthier, GFOA spokesman. 'It reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of government budgeting.'

'We continue to receive high ratings in all four rating categories that GFOA requires for a Budget Document including policy, financial, operations, and communications,' Assistant Director Manager Julie Demuth said. 'Our small staff produces exceptional work' she added.
