About Budget Documents

Budget documents reflect the adopted Pierce County budget. We hope it will enhance your understanding of how the County is organized, the services it provides, and the funding sources used to provide those services. 


Distinguished Budget Presentation Award

Pierce County Budget and Finance has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association for the Annual 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,' Budget Manager Julie Demuth said. 'Our small staff produces exceptional work' he added.


The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,600 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, Illinois and Washington, D.C.
