Budget Priorities Survey
Pierce County Executive Bruce Dammeier is preparing the 2024-25 biennial budget proposal for submission to the County Council for consideration in September. Similar to many other counties in Washington State, Pierce County’s costs are increasing faster than its revenues. The County projects it will need to reduce its planned general fund spending by $20 million each year – roughly 5% of the general fund budget – to maintain financial stability and avoid substantial cuts or tax increases in future years.
Given this reality, County leaders will face some difficult decisions in balancing the budget. To balance the budget in a way that speaks to the needs of the community, the Executive and County Council want to hear from you about your priorities and needs now and into the future.
