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.

'We continue to receive an overall proficient rating in all four rating categories that GFOA requires for a Budget Document including policy, financial, operations, and communications,' Budget Manager Jim Dickman said. 'Our small staff produces exceptional work' he added.
