The Comptroller of the Treasury sends out an Annual Budget Memo that includes the forms and procedures required for county budget appropriation resolutions. Counties are required to submit their budget with required supporting documents to the Office of State and Local Finance (OSLF) within 15 days of adoption. The Comptroller’s letter states that "The county and its officials, by submission of their budget to OSLF, represent that their annual operating and capital budget as adopted is realistic and in compliance with all federal, state or local statutes for specific programs." Counties that submit a budget with incorrect information may be required to submit monthly reports to OSLF.
