The Budget Division is responsible for the development and monitoring of the County budget. The Department serves Commissioners Court by providing recommendations to facilitate operational efficiency within the various County Departments. 

The budget development process begins with revenue projections for the County for the upcoming year. These revenue estimates will determine how much money is available to provide government services.

Departmental budget requests are considered and the Budget Department presents recommendations to the Hidalgo County Commissioners Court for approval and adoption.

Our mission is to support and enhance the effective, efficient operation of County government, maintain the County's fiscal integrity and financial condition, and preserve the County's bond rating by developing, implementing, and enforcing appropriate budgetary policies and procedures; providing accurate, timely, and objective information and recommendations to County departments, Commissioners Court and the general public.

We are committed to establishing a collaborative working relationship with County departments to assist them in making financial decisions and in providing them with the resources they need to achieve their goals and objectives. We are also determined to provide reliable and understandable financial information to Commissioners Court.
