The Boone County Fiscal Court has published the first “Annual Report to Citizens.”

This annual report touches upon metrics and activities across many county departments and summarizes the financial performance during Fiscal Year 2018.

“I am very excited to be able to share this information which highlights a number of services provided to our citizens by the County,” said Judge/Executive Gary Moore.

“This annual report is featured on the County’s website for everyone to see and I encourage all residents of Boone County to review the annual report.” 

The Fiscal Court is made up of Moore and county commissioners Charles Kenner, Cathy Flaig and Jesse Brewer.

Similar to a private company providing an annual report to its shareholders, the Fiscal Court says a local government should report to its citizens and taxpayers regarding finances, services, and activities of the preceding year.

The Boone County Fiscal Court is committed to transparency and accountability as it deliver services, administer programs, and endeavor to the needs of its citizens, said Moore.

In December, Boone County was assigned a Aaa bond rating by Moodys Investor Services.

This rating is the gold standard for local government agencies that issue debt and is a reflection of the county’s robust local economy and strong fiscal management. Boone County is the only county or city government in the state to maintain this rating.

The report is designed to provide an overview of county activities in 2018 and deliver an accounting of how tax dollars are invested and citizens are served.

It provides information on all country departments, including Animal Care and Control, Parks and Recreation, the Public Works Department and the Boone County Jail.

It also provides details on the updated County Transportation Plan.

In 2018 the county completed a comprehensive study of the Transportation Plan. The purpose was to take a fresh look at current and future transportation conditions.

The plan helped identify the most critical needs and develop transportation recommendations to address them. The entire plan can be viewed here.

The county encourages residents and business owners to reach out if they would like additional information or details. The contact information for Judge Moore and the county commissioners is available here.
