Bernalillo County commissioners will meet Tuesday from 12 to 3 p.m. to discuss the 2014 budget and allow time for public comment.

The budget was first approved last year, but some adjustments have been made.

The budget includes public services such as the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, the Bernalillo County Fire Department, Parks and Recreation and Solid Waste.

About 52% of the FY2014 budget goes to public safety, 15% to public works, and 9% to community services; the rest goes to other county services.

The County has prepared a presentation on the full budget here: http://meetings.bernco.gov/Citizens/Detail_Meeting.aspx?ID=1196

You can view the numbers and give public comment at the meeting.

You can also submit comment’s online through the county’s website.

Budget adjustments must be approved by the commission and the state Dept of Finance and Administration before they can be finalized.
