Bureau of Finance> Annual Budget
The Cook County Budget covers the funding of the activities of the County itself; included are expenses for all the independently elected county officials. Cook County Forest Preserve District is not included in the Budget because it is a special taxing district with a separate budget. The largest of the restricted funds is for the Cook County Health & Hospitals System which has a tax levy separate from the County.
Each year, the budget process includes the issuance of the Executive Budget Recommendation by the County Board President. This document is used as a base for the County budget and is then amended by the Board of Commissioners and the President's office to create the final annual budget, or Annual Appropriations Bill, that is then approved and adopted by the Board of Commissioners and implemented at the start of the fiscal year. Further details regarding this process can be found in the Budget Procedures and Structures portion of the Preface of the County Annual Appropriations Bill.
