Bay County announces the completion of three publications – the 2017 Annual Report, the 2018 Budget Summary, and the Bay County Strategic Plan – that aim to comprehensively provide citizens with information about efforts over the past year, how money is being spent in the current fiscal year and where the county is headed.
The 2017 Annual Report provides extensive information about county departments and programs, but more specifically, it highlights milestones reached throughout the course of the last fiscal year that ran from Oct. 1, 2016 to Sept. 30, 2017.
The 2018 Budget Summary condenses budget information in an effort to make it accessible and understandable for the general public, with a goal of succinctly communicating where the revenue that funds Bay County government comes from and how it is expended.
Finally, the 2018-2022 Strategic Plan serves as a roadmap for upcoming initiatives that will help determine how future budgets are allocated. The plan enumerates the specific steps the county will take to meet its adopted long-term, enduring goals of ensuring safety, providing effective services, maintaining our values, preserving our environment, and building a healthy business climate.
Please email County Manager Bob Majka at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a hard copy of the books, offer any feedback on the publications, or provide suggestions on how Bay County can better serve its citizens. Hard copies of the documents are also available at the Bay County Government Center, the Bay County Library, the Panama City Beach Library, the Bay County Chamber of Commerce or the Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce.
