Maricopa County supervisors adopt $2 billion budget

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has adopted what it describes as a “steady-as-you-go,” $2.26 billion budget for the spending year that begins July 1.

Supervisors voted unanimously Monday for the spending plan.

For the third year in a row, county workers will not see a cost-of-living adjustment or merit pay increase.

County officials say the next budget is about $66 million higher than the current fiscal year due to one-time project spending, but operating costs are reduced another $91 million.

New projects under the spending blue print include $52 million for a new sheriff’s transportation hub to move inmates from jails to court, $8 million to replace the Sheriff’s 911 equipment, and $109 million to replace the radio system used primarily by law enforcement.
