                               2007-09 Adopted Budget - Benton County, Oregon   1
                                       Board of Commissioner’s Message




June 26, 2007
A decline in resources presented considerable challenges in preparing the 2007-09 biennium county budget. Since the voters did not
renew the Health &Safety local option levy in 2003 Benton County reduced services and used reserves to balance the FY 04-05 budget
and our first biennium budget (2005-2007) that ended June 30, 2007. In the spring of 2005 the county planned to seek approval of a local
option levy to sustain services in the 2007-09 biennium.
In the multi-year financial plan prepared with the 2005-07 budget another challenge was foreseen in the federal government ceasing to
compensate counties with federal timber lands. This legislation (PL 106-393) provided Benton County with nearly $3 million dollars
annually of discretionary revenues and $320,000 annually to the road fund. In early 2006 it became increasingly clear multi-year renewal
would not happen that year and chances for even a one-year extension were in doubt.
To sustain current services into the 2007-09 biennia Commissioners submitted to the voters in November of 2006 a five-year local option
levy that would offset the loss of forest revenue and cover the residual budget shortfall from the failure of the 2003 levy. The levy was not
approved.
In detailed planning for the 2007-09 biennium the projected budget shortfall of $11.5 million was decreased to about $8.5 million to
maintain 2005-07 service levels into 2007-09. Much of this was the result of an improved outlook for state program support based on
legislative action. Secondarily, the costs of health insurance and retirement will be less than forecast, and estimates for some local
revenues are improved.
The budget is balanced, as required by law, but does so by reducing services, particularly in areas of public safety to which almost half of
county discretionary revenues are allocated now. Although the county will maintain full jail operations as mandated by state statute, the
county will not be able to sustain 24 hour a day, seven day a week sheriff's patrol, fewer crimes will be prosecuted and there will be a
reduction in resources available to deal with juvenile offenders. In all, we will have reduced the work force by 5.6%, equivalent to 22.72
full time equivalent (FTE) positions.
The budget includes the recently approved one-year extension of the federal forest payments, (but not a multi-year re-authorization) and it
also includes estimates of timber harvest values of less than one million dollars over the biennium (as prescribed prior to PL 106-393).
There are still serious discussions we need to have with the residents of Benton County on how to maintain stable, long-term funding for
public safety, health and transportation.

2                                   2007-09 Adopted Budget - Benton County, Oregon
                                               Budget Officer’s Message

This document contains the county’s second biennium budget covering the fiscal period from July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2009.
While the formal process of preparing this budget began in November of 2006, the nature of this budget has been in almost continuous
discussion since deliberations on the prior biennium budget (2005-07) began in the spring of 2005. To understand that statement a review
of budget history is in order.
In the wake of voter approval of property tax limitation measures 47/50 in 1996 and 1997 Benton County sought in 1998 and was granted
by voters a five-year local option levy to maintain revenues and services. The levy also enhanced public safety and health programs with
targeted service additions primarily focusing on youth services. The levy authorization ran through the fiscal year 2003-04. Voters in
2003 turned down a request to renew the levy, however at the same time they renewed a local option measure to continue rental of jail
space in surrounding counties. (That levy had been approved initially in 2000 after voters did not approve a bond measure to build a new
county jail).
In preparing the fiscal year 2004-05 budget, and later the biennial budget for 2005-07, the county adopted a strategy of selective budget
reductions and reliance on general fund reserves to maintain most services at more or less the 2003 level. The strategy also assumed an
effort to seek voter approval of a new local option levy to support the 2007-09 biennia budget.
In 2005, forecasting ahead to 2007-09 and beyond, the end of county forest payments was assumed in all budget projections. These
payments, at guaranteed levels by federal law since 1991 have been a key component of county general revenues and also a significant
part of Road Fund resources. The forecast assumed that forest payments would return to “old” law, meaning revenue would be based on
actual sales volume. Since the level of harvest in federal forests has been very low the forecast assumed federal forest General Fund
payments would drop from close to $3 million a year
under the federal guarantee, to about $500,000 per
year. As a result, budget forecasts in 2005 indicated the
county would have a $11.5 million General Fund                                    O & C Payment History/Projection
shortfall to overcome to balance the 2007-09 biennium                            General Fund (Not including Title III)
budget.                                                       3.5

The Board of Commissioners asked voters in                               3.0

November 2006 to approve a local option levy of
$0.89/1000 assessed value (AV) to maintain services                      2.5

and to make up for lost federal forest payments. The
levy would have been reduced by the amount of federal                    2.0

forest payments should congress enacted some form of
extension or re-authorization. Voters did not approve                    1.5


the levy.
                                                                         1.0

Congress, in May 2007, did approve a one-year
extension of the forest payment guarantee that will be                   0.5

paid in the fall of 2007. However, long-term
(multi-year re-authorization) remains very much in                       0.0
                                                                               56-57   60-61   64-65   68-69   72-73   76-77   80-81   84-85    88-89   92-93   96-97   00-01   04-05   08-09
doubt. Prudent budget forecasting requires an                                                                                     Fiscal Year

assumption that payments will not be re-authorized.
Where we are Today:
The adopted budget is balanced in all funds. The entire General Fund share of the one-year forest payment extension has been allocated to
the General Fund contingency pending future decisions. The budget and appropriation resolution contain a placeholder for a possible
Local Option Levy request on the November 2007 ballot. If approved, it would add new resources in the second half of the biennium. No
department budgets, as adopted, is dependent on this resource. Department budgets will be modified later, if the levy is approved.
The budget will reduce county employment by 17.25 FTE regular hire positions and 4.5 FTE of temporary or extra-hire positions. In all
an FTE reduction of 5.6%. In general, 24 hour a day, seven day a week sheriff’s patrol is eliminated. Staff in the District Attorney’s office,
Juvenile, Public Works and Assessment departments will be cut. There is some reliance on one-time resource shifts to keep the county jail
fully operational, maintain Adult and Juvenile Drug Treatment Court and partially offset the loss of forest revenue in the Road Fund.
These one-time shifts total some $928,000.
The county will maintain its grant commitment to continue the three year old primary health clinic, but operations of the clinic have been
changed, previously budgeted staff levels reduced and health services re-organized into two departments. One for the Health Center


                                     2007-09 Adopted Budget - Benton County, Oregon                                                                                                             3
operations, and one for all other health services. There will be some some reductions in public health services, particularly in prevention
and education.
A healthy state economy also means some programs will receive state funding increases. That has allowed in particular parole and
probation and mental health services to avoid deeper reductions. Cost of employer retirement contributions, which were expected to
increase again did not, due to policy changes and strong market earnings at the state system. The growing cost of health insurance
continues to be of concern but the county hopes initiatives begun in 2005 will pay off with plan and cost changes in 2008 that have been
agreed to by most employee units. Bargaining on a new contract continued after adoption of the budget with the deputy sheriffs
association.

General Revenues:
In the budget process, resources within the general revenue category are key to budget decision making. Revenues in this category can be
used for any legal purpose. Since 45% of county operating revenues are dedicated by law, contract or grant agreement, having this flexible
resource is key to setting priorities and responding to changing conditions and community desires. When this category experiences a
major loss, in this case from reduced federal county forest payments, it can constrain budget decision makers too. Particularly in funding
services that are highly dependent on this resource, in particular public safety and general government services.
Property taxes have long been the major component of general revenues. Property tax growth is tied to the rate of change in assessed
value. Assessed value is expected to grow at an annual rate of just over 3.5%. In recent years the amount of new home and commercial
construction has not delivered much new revenue because there have been major offsetting reductions of value in the industrial property

4                                     2007-09 Adopted Budget - Benton County, Oregon
category. The primary source of revenue growth will remain the 3% annual adjustment allowed for existing properties. New construction
will account for the remainder.

the revenue increase resulting from the annual CPI indexing.
Interest earnings are up considerably over the prior biennium because interest rates are substantially higher then they were in 2005, and
the general fund, in this biennium, will have relatively high reserves. (See discussion of general fund beginning balance below). Based on
continued growth in state liquor sales, state shared taxes (alcohol, cigarettes and amusement devices) will increase. Court fines come from
a share of traffic citations issued by sheriff’s deputies. Until recently this resource had been increasing. With fewer deputies on the road,
the trend may will not continue.

According to the budget forecast prepared in 2005 for the 2007-09
biennia, general fund unrestricted balance would decline to about the

Beginning balances are essentially a one-time resource. The general
strategy for 2007-09 has been to avoid excessive reliance on one-time resources to support ongoing operating expenses. Department
general revenue budget targets deliberately avoided allocating significant amounts of unrestricted general fund balance. In the absence of
a long-term authorization, the Budget Committee also considers the one-year extension of county forest payments to be a one-time
resource. Due to a very late renewal the committee felt there was not time to thoughtfully allocate this resources. It left the allocation
decision to the Board of Commissioners. The board will await the outcome of the proposed levy and news on federal re-authorization
before considering how to incorporated the forest payment extension into the biennium budget.

Property Taxes and Tax Rates:
Benton County has two operating property tax levies. The permanent rate of $2.2052per 1000 of Assessed Value (AV) is the maximum
amount the county can levy for operating purposes under the limitations of state ballot measure 50 adopted in 1997.
Voters can authorize, for up to five years, temporary “local option” operating levies. The Jail Space Rental levy was re-authorized in
2003 and expires after tax year 2008 (the end of the 2007-09 biennium). If the levy proposed in this budget is approved it will replace the
Jail Space Levy in 2008 and continue to fund the services it now provides through the 2011-13 biennia. If the proposed levy is not placed
on the ballot, or is not approved, the jail space levy will be put on the tax bill in 2008 at $0.26 per 1000 AV and the program continued for
the remainder of the biennium. (See table below).

                 - Tax Rate is dollars and cents per $1,000 of Assessed (Taxable) Value
                 - If the Local Option Gen Operations/Jail Space levy is approved it will replace the Local Option
                   Jail Space levy in the 2008 Tax Year.
                 - If the Local Option Gen Operations/Jail Space levy is not approved or not submitted
                   to voters, the Local Option Jail Space Rental levy will be imposed at $0.26 per $1000 AV in 2008.



The proposed levy tax rate is $0.90 per 1000 of assessed value (AV). In the concept adopted in this budget, approximately one-third of this
levy would be used to continue the jail space rental and transitional housing program funded by the current levy. The one-third, about
$0.26 per 1000 AV, is budgeted in the Adult Corrections Program Fund. The remaining two-thirds has been allocated to the general fund
reserve until the issue of the levy is resolved. If approved, department budgets for the second half of the biennium will be adjusted as
described in the measure. If the levy is not approved, the budget will be modified to eliminate the reserve amount in the general fund.
Cost Drivers:
Retirement Costs
The retirement system reforms enacted by the 2003 legislature had a material effect on stemming rising costs. The county also actively
sought to use tools available to it to reduce long-term costs. In 2002 and 2004 Benton County joined other local governments, schools and
the state and sold pension obligation bonds. These bonds took advantage of historically low market interest rates to pay off the county’s
share of unfunded actuarial liability (UAL). Even after factoring in cost of debt service, the bond sale reduce county employer retirement
costs. Now the county is in a position of having a surplus on deposit with the retirement system that because of recent market earnings
have further reduced employer rates, both in the 2005-07 biennium below budget estimates, and into the 2007-09 biennia. While
employer costs are still high by some standards, it appears it will not continue to grow. Given reasonable market returns Benton County’s
costs may begin to slowly decline with each future biennial rate evaluation.
At the close of the 2005-07 biennia the county took advantage of an opportunity to further reduce long term costs. Using balances from the
general and other funds, the county exercised an option to pay off $1,315,000 in bond principle due in the year 2025. Staff has calculated
the payment will reduce payroll costs by one-half percent per year for the next eighteen years. This action was supported by the Budget
Committee as an effective application of one-time fund balance.
Health Insurance:
The current and future cost of health insurance is being addressed by an internal “Insurance Commission” that was an outgrowth of the
2005 budget process. Its role was to evaluate and recommend health insurance options that could mitigate projected double digit annual
increases in insurance premiums. The commission involved representatives of management and labor groups in its process. A report was
delivered to the Board of Commissioners in the fall of 2006. The effort has led to changes in the health insurance package available to
employees for the plan year that begins August 1, 2007. Addition changes and a new high deductible option will be available in 2008. All
employee units have agreed to these changes except the deputy sheriff’s association (the county and unit were in contract negotiations as
the budget was adopted). Over the biennium the county expects to keep total cost of insurance below the budget assumption of annual
11% increases. Longer term, it is expect that the trend of annual increases will remain in single digit territory.

Salaries:
Bargaining unit contracts provide for 3% salary schedule adjustment in 2007(except the deputy sheriffs association which is in
negoitation). Adjustments are between 3 and 4% in 2008 depending on unit. (See supplemental data section for additional detail.)
Department Budget Overview:
The following is a brief summary of the significant budget issues in each department. For more detail, please see individual department
chapters.
Administrative Services:
In the General Fund, regular staff FTE in Records will be reduced by .75 FTE. Commissioner on Children and Families staffing will be
reduced by 1 FTE because supporting federal grants are not being renewed. Fewer temporary worker hours are being budgeted in
Elections and in Records.
Total staff for the Information Resource Management Division remains the same as authorized in the 2005-07 biennium but costs and
FTE are being shifted among various funds to reflect changes in operation. In 2005-07 the county invested significant resources into
redesign of its internet presence and public content. To maintain and expand on the effort a .75 FTE webmaster position will be added.
The position will also help maintain the county’s new intranet which makes county wide information, policies and other resources easily
accessible to employees.
There are no changes to human resource, finance and budget functions.
Assessment:
Two vacant positions, an appraiser and a support position are eliminated. A cartographer position will be continued for one year with
funding from the geographic information system (GIS) program. A decision whether to continue the position into the second year will be
made next spring prior to filing the annual grant document for state financial support of the assessment and tax system.
Board of Commissioners:
Overall staffing FTE will not change, but there are internal shifts. Support staff to county counsel will be reduced during the biennium to a
half time position. Public information services, a function formerly conducted under a contract sharing Lane County staff has been moved
in-house. This change occurred in mid 2005-07 biennia and will be continued.
Community Development:
The department will meet its budget target through two actions. 1) the department director position (vacated by retirement in June) will
not be filled in the first half of the biennium. The Senior Planner has been appointed acting in capacity. A limited duration planner position
will be hired to assist with the measure 37 workload; 2) a staff position newly certified as a plan examiner will have its full cost shifted to
building inspection which is fully fee supported.
District Attorney:
A victim assistance support staff and one deputy district attorney position will be eliminated. Both positions are currently vacant. Extra
hire staff will be eliminated from general fund operations.
Fairgrounds:
Extra-hire budgets for event staffing is reduced. The amount set aside for heavy building maintenance is reduced slightly from 2005-07
levels.
Health Center:
In mid-2005-07 the Health Center was carved out of the Health Department and given department status. The Health Center budget is
exclusively in the Health Center Fund, however it "buys" many support services such as record keeping, billing, accounting and related
management services from the Health Department. The Health Center pays the cost of these services as determined by an internal cost
allocation formula.
Public health services that remained with the Health Department were transferred back to the General Fund. The operations of the center
were also significantly re-organized and the budget reflects the results of those changes to staffing and other costs. To understand the total
impact of changes this document reports not only the separate budgets of the two departments, but a consolidated budget.
Health Department:
Mental health and environmental health functions are largely unchanged as a result of the creation of the Health Center Department. The
General Fund budget of the department grew with the transfer of public health services from the Health Center Fund.

A one-time use of reserves from the Oregon Health Plan Fund and new Medicaid resources will maintain Adult Drug Treatment Court and
other alcohol and drug treatment services through the biennium.
In general, some preventive and health education services will be reduced, but overall the department will continue at about the level of
the current biennium.
Juvenile:
During 2005-07 the department reduced staff through several planned reductions built into that biennium. In 2007-09 the budget was
balanced to the general revenue target by reducing from 5 to 3 the number of fixed cost detention beds at the Linn County Oak Creek
facility. A counselor position will be eliminated following retirement, but the extra-hire budget is increased. The department director
position will continue to be budgeted at the cost of a half-time position through the biennium, although the FTE total reflects the position
as 1.00 FTE. (The director position is currently filled by the retired former director working half-time).
Law Enforcement:
The department budget is heavily dependent on general revenue support. To deal with the reduced general revenue allocation 5 patrol
deputies and 1 corrections officer position in the jail were eliminated. For the first time state community corrections (CCA) dollars will be
used to support jail operations. This will keep the jail functioning at its 40 inmate capacity rather than 27 bed capacity if staffing levels
were reduced further. The shift was made possible by carry-over CCA dollars from the prior biennia and an increase in funding from the
state. It is anticipate this shift of $486,000 can not be sustained in the next biennium without causing a reduction in parole and probation
staff and services.
The cut back of patrol positions has resulted in elimination of 24 hour, seven day a week patrol. There will be a patrol presence 20 hours
per 24 hour period with an on-call system providing coverage as needed. In addition, the Undersheriff position, vacated when the
incumbent was elected Sheriff will not be filled until the second year of the biennium.
Two additional FTE were eliminated in mid-2005-07 by transfer to the City of Corvallis under a new joint records management
agreement. The county will still incur cost of payments to support the consolidated function.
Natural Areas & Parks
The department achieved its general revenue target by delaying the filling of the vacant department director position until the summer of
2008. In addition, the grounds maintenance function, which takes care of landscape maintenance at county buildings will be supported by
a payment from the facilities budget, rather than directly by general revenues. This will occur in the second year of the biennium.
The maintenance of the Jackson-Frazier wetlands and disc golf facilities at Adair Park will be absorbed into the general maintenance
budget and separate trust funds dissolved.
Public Works:
The Road Fund, like the General Fund, is affected by the one-year extension of county forest payments and the budget assumption that
payments will not be re-authorized for the second year and following biennia. The amount of federal and state capital funds for specific
road and bridge projects is expended to decline. The budget will eliminate two vacant road worker positions from the Road Fund. To help
offset second year loss of forest revenue, the department will refund a portion of its equipment replacement reserve. This will return
$243,000 to the road fund. The budget committee added a general fund transfer of $400,000 to use for surface maintenance. The
department was given the discretion to decide the most effective use of the funds for chip seals and overlays. Without the transfer there
would have been no significant surface preservation activity in the biennium.
Two FTE added to the Motor Pool in latter part of the 2005-07 biennium will be continued. They were added to accommodate increasing
demand for services from other governmental agencies. Motor pool staff now provides vehicle inspection and maintenance services to
over 30 agencies including cities, fire districts and some local federal and state agency vehicles.
The Facilities Division will defer some building maintenance projects to free a pool of $217,000 that will be transferred back to the
general fund In addition, beginning in the second year of the biennium, facilities will begin covering most of the cost of building
landscape maintenance. (See Natural Areas and Parks discussion). The division budget also assumes charges to departments for space
will increase by $0.095 per square foot per month over the biennium.
The facilities division is also responsible for heavy maintenance projects at the fairgrounds for which it is reimbursed by the fair fund. The
budget committee restored this funding to 92% of the previous level.
Non-departmental:
Veterans service support from county resources will remain unchanged from the previous biennium. The amount of state pass-through
support is expected to also remain unchanged. General revenue support of the OSU/Benton County Extension service will decline but it
will receive lottery economic development dollars to make up the difference. The county will continue support for wild animal control for

one year to give local livestock producers time to work toward a self assessment system to support the service. Biennium support of the
Benton County Historical Museum will be reduced 20% to $476,747.
Beyond 2007-09
Preparation of the budget includes a forecast of the next two biennia (2009-11 and 2011-13). The forecast indicates that without new
resources, reductions in the 2007-09 budget are not enough. Future staff and service reductions would be required to balance.
The estimated general fund shortfall to continue the 2007-09 budget into 2009-11 is $4.2 million. To restore services such as 24 hour
patrol, district attorney and juvenile staff, juvenile detention bed space, and add back health services would cost an addition $1.8 million.
The forecast assumes county forest payments will not be restored. However, if forest payments are re-authorized, the most likely scenario
is restoration at a lessor amount, probably with a declining annual payment. It is important to note that re-authorized forest payments
might be enough to prevent additional budget reductions, but even the most optimistic renewal scenario would not be enough to restore
services cut to balance 2007-09.
The other major service area with serious funding shortfalls is in road maintenance. The primary source of general maintenance support is
the county’s share of state motor fuel and vehicle registration fees. Essentially this resource has not increased in a decade. Prior to the
one-year forest payment extension and budget committee decision to provide general fund support, the budget provided for no general
surface maintenance funding in the biennium. While some funding was temporarily added, cost increases in fuel, rock and asphalt greatly
reduced the value of those dollars. Other general maintenance activities such as striping and gravel road stabilization will be reduced.
The budget preparation process requires consideration work on the part of many and in particular it sometimes requires remembering
budgeting skills that are not practiced as often now that the organization is in a two year budget mode. In particular I want to thank Anne
Baker for her assistance.
Budget and department staff worked hard to provide the most accurate information possible during the budget development process and
through this document. We believe it fairly conveys the financial circumstances, issues and strategies developed during the budget
deliberation process.
We sincerely hope this document is a useful primer on county government, and as always are available to answer your questions. This

                                  2007-09 Adopted Budget - Benton County, Oregon                                                11
                                           Biennial Budget Background

Biennial Budgeting:
This document describes the county’s second biennial budget. As required by law (ORS Chapter 294) the Board of Commissioners
approved a resolution in December 2004 directing that future county budgets be prepared on a biennial basis. The Board of
Commissioners acting as the respective Governing Body also adopted resolutions in January 2005 directing that budgets of the Benton
County Library Services County Service District and the North Albany County Service District be prepared on a biennial basis, too.
The adopted 2007-09 biennium budget covers the period from July 1, 2007 through June 30, 2009.
Why Financial Presentations Mix One and Two Year Budget Information:
Oregon Local Budget Law requires that the Budget Document show the adopted budget along with the previous budget and the actual
results of the prior two appropriated periods in the financial tables. The prior two actual periods (fiscal years 2003-04 and 2004-05) are
annual values. All financial tables in this document will therefore include a mix of annual actual results along with biennium budgets.
The biennium budget summaries include three columns. The first is the budget initially adopted for the 2005-07biennium in June of 2005.
The second column contains the 2005-07 biennium as modified by appropriation transfers or supplemental budget amendments through
the end of the 2005-07 biennia. The final right hand column contains the summary of the budget as adopted for the 2007-09 biennia.
Legal Requirements of the Budget Committee:
The budget must be prepared and discussed before the public in the manner described in ORS Chapter 294. The Governing Body (in this
case the Board of Commissioners) must designate a Budget Officer. The Budget Officer is responsible for preparation of budget details
and presentation to the Budget Committee.
The Budget Committee is composed of the members of the Governing Body, and an equal number of citizens appointed by the Governing
Body. Citizen members are appointed to staggered three-year terms in districts with annual budgets. In districts with biennial budgets
members are appointed to staggered four year terms.
All sessions of the Budget Committee are open to the public. During review of the budget at least one meeting must include advertised
time to receive public comment. After one or more meetings the Budget Committee must approve a budget and set the maximum tax rate
for each year of the biennium. The county charter also requires the citizen members of the Budget Committee set the salary of the Board of
Commissioners. Under committee bylaws this is to be considered during the budget review period.
Following review and approval by the committee, a summary of the budget is advertised. The Board of Commissioners then holds a
formal public hearing. After the hearing, the board may adopt the budget, or within certain limits, make changes to the one approved by
the budget committee. In no case may the Board increase property tax rates above that set by the committee and no fund budget by more
than 10% without reconvening the full Budget Committee. The budget must be adopted by the Board of Commissioners before July 1 of
the new biennium.
Local Process:
In November 2006, the Board of Commissioners, in consultation with the Budget Committee, established department general revenue
allocations and other parameters for preparation of the biennial budget.
Departments prepared a preliminary budget within the general revenue allocations. The Budget Committee was briefed on the
preliminary budget during a work session on February 13, 2007. Considering advice of the citizen members and department head
discussions the Board of Commissioners gave instructions for preparation of the proposed budget.
In a parallel process a committee, established by county financial policies, evaluated capital improvement project proposals. The result of
this process is a six-year capital improvement plan.
The proposed budget and capital improvement plan was presented to the Budget Committee on April 2, 2007. After nine review sessions,
including a three week pause to wait for congressional action on federal county forest payments, the committee approved a budget and set
maximum tax levies on May 31, 2007.
The approved budget was published on June 21, 2007. The Board of Commissioners conducted a public hearing on June 26, 2007 and
adopted the budget with some modifications to that approved by the Budget Committee. All modifications were within the limits allowed
by Oregon Budget Law.

                                                Benton County History & Organization

Benton County was established in 1847. In 1972, voters approved a home rule charter that established the organization much as it is today.
The county is governed by a three-member Board of Commissioners. Commissioners serve full time and are elected at large to a four-year
term. The board has executive, legislative and quasi-judicial authority granted by state law and the charter. They are responsible for
setting organization policy, selecting non-elected department heads, enacting ordinances, and adopting a budget.
In addition, the Board is designated by law as the Governing Body of six County Service Districts. Each service district is a separate legal
entity. Each is established to provide specific services as approved by its voters or the Board of Commissioners depending on the method
of district creation. Various county departments provide administrative and management services for these districts. The adopted budgets
of these districts are included in this document for convenience.
Estimated county population on July 1, 2006, was 84,125. The county seat is located in Corvallis (53,900). Other incorporated cities are
Philomath (4,460), Adair (920), Monroe (610) and a portion of Albany (6,215), the rest of which is in Linn County (46,610 total Albany
population).
There are two elected department heads. The Sheriff heads the Department of Law Enforcement. The position of District Attorney is
established by the state constitution and legislative action and is head of the District Attorney Department. Both are non-partisan positions
elected to a four-year term. In November 2003, county voters amended the Charter to convert the Assessor from an elected office to a
position appointed by the Board of Commissioners.

                                        Revenue and Expenditure Categories:
                                                                       Definitions
In this document and in the county accounting system resources (revenues) are summarized into one of nine categories. Expenditures are
reported under one of seven categories. Reserves are classified in one of three categories. Oregon Local Budget Law requires the budget
estimate all resources available for expenditure in the biennium. The budget then is the description of how (or whether) the estimated
resources will be used in that current budget period, or held (saved) for future periods. (See supplemental data chapter for additional
details and breakdowns of sources with in the categories).
Current Revenues: (Revenues estimated to be received in the budget period)
General Revenues:       These resources can be used for any legal purpose. This category is used only in the general fund because by definition revenues
in any other fund are dedicated to the purpose of that fund.
Charges for Service:     Includes any revenue earned on a transactional basis such as licenses, permits, fees for services and internal service charges for
items such as photocopying, motor pool or space rental.
Operating Grants/Contributions:         Includes any revenue that is dedicated by law, contract, policy, ordinance or grant to a specific operating
purpose (program or service).
Capital Grants/Contributions:          Includes any revenue received that is specifically and 100% dedicated to support for capital improvements. (If not
exclusively for capital projects, the revenue would be reported under Operating Grants/Contributions).
Internal Fund Transfers:       Transfer of resources from one fund to another on a non-transactional basis.
Loans:     Revenues from loans or repayment of loans (including interest). Loans can be internal (between funds) or external (sale of bonds, etc).

Beginning Balances: (Resources carried forward from a prior budget period)
Unrestricted Beginning Balance:         General Fund unrestricted balance that can be used for any purpose.
Dedicated Beginning Balance:        In the General Fund, this means a balance that is dedicated to a specific purpose by contract, policy, law or grant
agreement. By definition a balance in any other fund is dedicated to the purpose of that fund.
Capital Beginning Balance:        Balances associated with a multi-year capital improvement project. This will normally only be found in designated
capital project funds.

Expenditure Categories: (Budgeted for expenditure in the current budget period)
Personnel Services:      All salary and benefit costs of employees both regular, part-time and temporary.
Materials & Services:       All payments for goods or services, including internally provided services (motor pool, central or department overhead, etc.).
Capital Outlay:      All cost of capital goods. Although departments may budget smaller amounts, only individual items costing $5,000 or more are
reported as fixed assets in the annual audit.
Other: Internal Fund Transfers:         Any transfer of resources from one fund to another. (Counterpart to the revenue internal fund transfer category.)
Other: Loans:      Interfund or external loans. Interfund loans may be for cash flow or capital purposes. These are rare and must follow statutory rules
and limitations. External loans are generally from grant funds for specific purposes such as housing rehabilitation or to service districts for capital
improvements or temporary operating purposes.
Other: Debt Principle:       Principle payments on bonded debt or repayment of internal/external loans.
Other: Debt Interest:      Interest payments on bonded debt or repayment of internal/external loans.

Reserve: (Resources not anticipated to be expended in the budget period)
Other: Contingency:       Reserved for emergency or unanticipated expense. To access contingency funds requires the Board of Commissioner formally
approval an appropriation transfer from the fund contingency account to the category where the expense will be charged.
Other: Reserve:      Resources allocated to this category are generally expected not to be used until a following biennium. Under county financial
policy these accounts can be accessed in case of emergency or unanticipated expenses under the same rules as a contingency account.
Other:Unappropriated Balance:          A resource which is not appropriated (not available for expenditure) in the current budget. This allocation is used
to show funds reserved for cash flow (working capital) purposes, or that are being held specifically for use in a future year. These funds can not be
appropriated (expended) in the current budget period except in the case of severe disaster as described by Oregon Local Budget Law.

About Reserves:
Allocating resources to reserves also serves the important function of providing operating cash or working capital. Most operating funds
require some amount of working capital. Working capital reserves are established by fund based on individual operating characteristics
(timing of inflows and outflows). County financial polices require a minimum of $3.5 million working capital balance in the General
Fund.

About Funds:
Underpinning operational departments and program areas of government entities is the concept of fund accounting. Funds have the
historical purpose of separating accounting for resources that are dedicated to specific purposes such as roads, from revenues that could
be used for any legal purpose, or for general government functions like law enforcement, elections or tax collection.
Expenditures within a fund can by definition only be made to accomplish the purpose(s) for which that fund was created. County funds
are created by the state constitution, state and local laws, by financial policies or generally accept accounting practices (GAAP) for public
agencies. Accounting rules and budget considerations are also determined by the type classification of each fund. (Governmental, special
revenue, debt, enterprise, internal service, agency and fiduciary). For information on fund types, accounting and other assets of county
funds readers should consult the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (Audit). Reports are available on-line at
http://www.co.benton.or.us/admin/finance/statements.php.
In Benton County, county financial policies seek to minimize the number of funds. There are only 24 active funds comprising the county
budget. The consequence of this is that the county General Fund constitutes more than half of the budget and contains a complex mix of
unrestricted and dedicated resources. These resources are segregated through the accounting structure and account classifications. To
fully understand the county budget and inter-mix of resources the reader needs to appreciate both the purpose of funds and the distinctions
between revenue types. (An explanation of revenue and expenditure categories that appear in this document is provided in the How to
Read the Budget Document chapter).
On the following pages is a financial overview of each county fund, a brief description of the purpose of the fund, and significant current
or future issues, if any. A matrix showing the distribution of department budgets by fund is in the Supplemental Data chapter of this
document. The total All Funds budget is shown in the Budget Officer’s Message on page 4.

Purpose:
To account for resources not required to be accounted for in other funds. In general, county financial policies seek to limit the number of
county funds to those required by statute, local ordinance, contract or good public accounting practices. Thus the county general fund
includes a large array of services, many associated with “traditional” government functions.
Budget Overview:
All county discretionary revenues are accounted for in the general fund and are reported in the General Revenue category. Included in this
category is $3.7 million that is contingent on passage of a local option levy that would fund services in the second year of the biennium.
All of that revenue is allocated to the reserve category pending the outcome of the levy. If submitted to voters and passed the reserve will
be allocated to department budgets.
The drop in operating grants resources and materials expenditures are linked to changes in method of state payments to community
agencies providing services to the developmentally disabled population.
The Contingency and Unappropriated Balance categories are set asides of unrestricted resources. The contingency account includes $2.3
million from the one-year extension of county forest payments. The extension occurred late in the budget process. Decision about use of
this resource in the biennium will be made later, perhaps in conjunction with levy decisions and any future action congress might make to
extend payments into future years..

Purpose:
To account for resources which are statutorily or constitutionally (state) restricted to maintenance of county roads and highways.
Budget Overview:
The budget anticipates a biennium loss of $320,000 in federal forest payments. Without a further extension that will translate into
$640,000 in reduced revenue in the next biennium (2009-11). Shared state fuel tax and user fees are not projected to increase. The level of
income from project grants will decline. General fund support will provide $400,000 for surface maintenance in the biennium. Without
that level of support few in any chip seals or overlays would be done. See capital improvement plan for projects anticipated in 2007-09.

Purpose:
To account for accumulation and distribution of dedicated local and state common school fund resources to local school districts as

The amount of resources available and distributed from year to year varies. The appropriation level should be more than sufficient to
cover foreseeable requirements. All resources and expenditures are mandated by statute. (See Non-departmental Department for more
Information).

Purpose:
To account for revenues dedicated to released offender transitional housing and rental of jail space in other counties as approved by voters
in a local option property tax levy. Oregon Local Budget Law requires a local option levy that has a specific purpose be accounted for in
its own fund.
Budget Overview:
The current tax levy authorization was approved in 2003 and will expire at the end of the 2007-09 biennia. The maximum approved
annual tax rate is $0.29 per 1000 of assessed value (AV). In 2006 the rate was reduced to $0.26/1000 AV and will be levied in the 2007 tax
year (the first year of the 2007-09 biennium)at $0.26/1000 AV. (See Law Enforcement Department for more information).
If a new local option levy (discussed in the Budget Officers message in this document) is submitted and approved by voters in November
of 2007, the current jail levy will be incorporated into that levy. If the proposed local option levy is not submitted, or is not approved, the
local option levy will be imposed at $0.26 per 1000 AV in 2008, as previously authorized by voters. If there is no new tax levy authority
authorized after 2008 this program could operate into the 2009-11 biennium until fund balance is exhausted. About 12 to 14 months of the
24 month biennium.

Purpose:
To account for resources that support principle and interest payments to retire bonded debt. (See Administrative Services Department
more information.)
Budget Overview:
Current bonded debt consists of two pension obligation bond issues sold in 2002 and 2004. Revenues supporting principle and interest
payments are derived from payroll charges to county departments (Charges for Service). Other current income is from interest earnings on
fund balances. Reserves in the fund are intended to grow to cover future payment schedules without increasing future payroll rates.
In the last month of the 2005-07 biennium the county exercised an option to retire a portion of future principle. Surplus funds were
transferred from the general and other funds to support the payment. Retirement of principle and its associated interest cost will save
county operations about one-half percent of salary annually through the year 2025.

To accumulate resources over multiple years toward an equity contribution to future construction of a downtown office building for
county administrative and other space needs. (See Non-departmental Department for more information).

consist of net revenues after expenses from rental of property on the Law Enforcement building block. (See Public Works department
budget).

                                                         Administrative Services
The Administrative Services Department (ASD) provides much of the infrastructure
                                                                                              Administrative Services Director:
necessary to plan and provide business support services, as well as to engage and
involve residents in the work Benton County does for the community and families.              Ramona Rodamaker
There are six divisions in the department. Three divisions, the Commission on Children        Office Location:
and Families, the Finance Division, and the Records and Elections Office, serve Benton
County residents directly. The other three, Budget, Human Resources, and Information          Benton Plaza
Resource Management, provide business support services to the County as their                 408 SW Monroe
primary functions.                                                                            Corvallis, OR 97333

The Commission on Children and Families (CCF) office works with volunteers to make       Telephone:
Benton County a healthy environment for children and families through advocacy,          (541) 766-6816
community mobilization, and advancement of proven prevention strategies. In both
2005 and 2007, Benton County was named one of the top 100 communities for youth in       FAX:
the nation. The Commission played a pivotal role in securing this designation and
                                                                                         (541) 766-6893
celebrating the award at several community events. In addition, the Commission
sponsored positive youth development and prevention activities such as the Teen
Summit and Teen Idol competitions and provided support to local Youth Commissions
and VELA, a Latino student leadership group. In the next biennium, CCF has an
aggressive agenda of updating the local coordinated comprehensive services plan,
developing and securing funding for a new crisis relief nursery to reduce child abuse,
and putting together a plan to support runaway and homeless youth. Accomplishing these goals will be more difficult because two major
grants that supported programs and operations have ended and the county does not have General Funds available to backfill the grants or
sustain the services.
The Finance Division plays a dual role. It collects property taxes for the county and all other districts. It also provides the county’s
financial services including: receivables, payables, payroll, investments, debt management, and auditing. The Finance Manager is
appointed and serves as the county’s Treasurer. In the last year, the Finance Office received an audit report that was issued without
qualification, received its seventeenth consecutive Certificate for Excellence in Financial Reporting award from the Government Finance
Officers’ Association, and helped the new Health Center Department to navigate and mitigate substantial, but routine start up difficulties,
caused by delays in receipt of federal reimbursements for medical services.
The Records and Elections Division is managed by the County Clerk, which is an appointed position in Benton County. This office
conducts all elections in Benton County, issues marriage and dog licenses, and records documents. In the last year, the Records Office has
completed a project to capture and index all of the Board of Commissioner’s records electronically and has worked to change a County
ordinance to allow multi-year dog licensing.
The Budget Division is responsible for managing the preparation and execution of the county budget and the budgets of six service
districts. In the last biennium, the Budget Office completed its goal of implementing a new cost allocation system that will enable the
County to recoup administrative costs from the federal government and others. In addition, the Budget Officer, Board of Commissioners,
and the Budget Committee have spent much time planning for the loss of federal timber revenues, which combined with the loss of the
1998-2003 Health and Safety levy, has resulted in a 16% overall decrease in county unrestricted revenues. In November 2006, the county
pursued a renewal of the Health and Safety levy to make up some of these losses, but it was defeated, at least in part, because there were
several competing money measures on the ballot.
The Human Resources Division is responsible for recruiting, staff development and training, employee and labor relations, and
development of personnel policies. In the 2006, the division staffed a Health Insurance Commission, charged with suggesting lower cost
alternatives to providing traditional employee and retiree health insurance benefits. In 2007, Human Resources will be renegotiating
three collective bargaining agreements with the Benton County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, the Oregon Nursing Association, and the
American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees Union.
The Information Resource Management Division is responsible for maintaining the county’s personal computer and network operations,
telecommunications, Geographic Information System (GIS), and other application, database, and programming systems. In the last year,
IRM redesigned and upgraded the county’s web site, installed network and server room environmental monitoring equipment, installed a
new data backup system, and consolidated its operations and moved staff from three offices into one county-owned facility.

Objectives:
    • Improve dog licensing revenue and compliance through use of multi-year
       licensing ordinance and improved system functionality
Budget Note:
Fees for recording documents with the County Clerk are mostly set by state law. Income from document recording fees, due to the volume
of mortgages, property refinancing and the number of pages now being required by various parties in the sale of property, is currently
exceeding the cost of recording. In effect the surplus income is available to offset for other services in the division, including elections.
The amount of general revenues parentheses ( ) indicates the amount of income in excess (surplus) of budget requirements.

Accomplishments:
      • All principle and interest payments were made as scheduled.
      • Growth of debt reserves are on target to meet future scheduled principle and interest payments
Objectives:
      • Continue to build debt reserve so that future principle and interest payments can be met without increasing future internal
         payroll charges
Budget Note:
The sale of pension obligation bonds allowed the county to eliminate its unfunded actuarial liability (UAL) with the Oregon Public
Employees Retirement System (OPERS). The bonds were sold during a period of historically low interest rates. Bonding reduced the
county’s long term retirement costs, even after factoring in the cost of paying off the bonds. Overall, bonding reduced the cost of
retirement obligations by 3 to 4% of payroll and may result in even larger future savings following each biennial calculation of employer
rates to the retirement system.

Accomplishments:
      • Maintained adequate reserves for workers compensation program
Objectives:
      • Transfer $250,000 in surplus worker’s compensation reserves to the General Fund
Budget Note:
Personnel costs are for payoff of certain vacation and sick leave accruals when an employee retires. Whether an employee is eligible for
these payoffs and how much vacation or sick leave is paid depends on applicable bargaining unit contract, or county personnel policies in
the case of non-represented positions. Amounts will vary considerably from year to year. The amount accumulated for this purpose is
collected through the cost allocation plan and the accumulation is capped at one and a half times anticipated five-year liability.
All other income is based on payroll charges and workers compensation job classification. These charges are adjusted as necessary on an
experience basis.

Budget Note:
The department will receive a payment from the Geographical Information System (GIS, see Administrative Services) to retain a second
cartographer for the first half of the biennium. This will allow the department to continue mapping conversion work for the benefit of the
GIS system in general. The Board of Commissioners will evaluate whether to retain the position for the remainder of the biennium prior to
filing the annual County Assessment Function Funding Assistance (CAFFA) grant in May of 2008. If the position is not retained in the
second half, total department FTE would drop to 16.

The adopted budget will allow the department to meet statutory obligations and insure that we continue to receive our share of the state
grant dollars known as the County Assessment Function Funding Assistance (CAFFA) which amounts to about $500,000 per year.
Dropping from 19 FTE to 16 FTE for this budget period will potentially impair our

The loss of an appraiser position will put us at the state recommended minimum for a
county of our size, which is six.                                                             205 NW 5th Street

Our greatest challenge will be in our Cartography Section:
                                                                                              Telephone:

· Expecting that we could still process all of the mapping changes such as plats,             FAX:

great of a task for any one person. It takes 1.5 FTE just to do the state mandated
functions with another .5 FTE for ORMAPS and GIS duties. The County has received
$112,000 in ORMAPS grant fund commitments in the last year or so. About half of that
amount has been collected this past year with the balance coming in the next 12 months.
This money is currently being deposited into the GIS budget as it is received.
A reduction to a single one cartographer next year may not meet the minimum
recommended standard for a county of our size set by the Department of Revenue.
Property taxes produce over 80% of county general revenues. The ability of our office to accurately value property, particularly first time
additions to the tax roll from new construction, is important under the Oregon system to sustaining funding for important government
services and schools. From a fairness standpoint, setting accurate initial values for new homes and businesses is a matter of maintaining
equity with existing similar properties and ensures they pay their fair share.

Purpose:
The Benton County Assessment Department mission is to administer the property tax assessment programs accurately, fairly, efficiently,
in compliance with state mandates, focusing on customer service.
The primary objective of the Assessor’s Office is to ensure all real and personal property is valued in a fair and equitable manner as
required by the State of Oregon. Each year the Assessor must value all taxable property at 100 percent of market value and establish the
portion of that market value subject to taxation (Maximum Assessed Value).

information to the public, and foster cooperation with other public agencies and organizations.

                                              Department Head Message
                                                        Community Development
With seven FTE reporting directly to the Community Development Director, this
department is one of the County’s smallest. But it is also a department where each             Community Development Director:
employee interacts extensively with the public. Therefore, providing excellent                 Greg Verret, Acting In Capacity
customer service is one of the department’s highest objectives.
                                                                                               Office Location:
Our goal for the building division is to maintain it as a self-supported program. Based on
current trends we anticipate a carryover at the end of the biennium. This carry over is        Avery Complex
important because it will help maintain service during downturns in building activity.         360 SW Avery Avenue
                                                                                               Corvallis, OR 97333
The Planning Division collected significantly more funds resulting from Measure 37
claims than what was estimated in the 2005-07 budget. In the last biennium, the                Telephone:
department received $63,600 for the 135 claims that have been submitted. This                  (541) 766-6819
represents $48,600 more than what was estimated. However, unlike the revenues
received in the Building Division budget, these funds do not carry over into the next          FAX:
biennium.
                                                                                               (541) 766-6891
While some cost savings are being proposed from reductions in discretionary spending,
most of the savings must come from personal services. The three department heads at
the Avery Complex were directed by the Board of Commissioners to look at ways in
which departments could work together to achieve cost savings. The most significant proposal in terms of the Community Development
budget was to make the Senior Planner Acting in Capacity (AIC) as the Community Development Director for one year, leave the Senior
Planner position vacant during this time, and hire for a limited duration an Assistant Planner. The budget for the first year of the 2007-09
biennium assumes this scenario. (This was made possible by the planned retirement of the department head in June of 2007).
The other part of this budget plan is to hire, for a limited duration, an Assistant Planner during the time the Senior Planner position is
vacant. Additional significant cost savings to the Planning Division general revenue supported budget will be achieved by moving the
Administrative Assistant entirely into the Building Division budget. Currently 50 percent of this position is funded in planning. Moving
this position entirely within the Building Division budget reduces the general revenue requirement over the biennium by $68,50.
The Planning Division anticipates an increase in revenue from land use applications by approximately 10 percent. This predicted increase
is warranted due to the large number of approved Measure 37 claims that will need to be processed through some sort of land use
submission. In addition, the Planning Division recently raised its fees by approximately 10 percent.
The Community Development Department’s number one priority is providing excellent customer service. While the large number of
Measure 37 claims has provided new challenges, the budget, as proposed, with the add back in the second year of the biennium, will allow
the department to maintain its current number of staff and perform the services this department is responsible for.

It is the mission of the District Attorneys office to protect the public from crime;
safeguard children from abuse and neglect; enforce the rights of children and families to      Department Head:
receive child support; assist and advise crime victims; and foster a respect for the rule of   John Haroldson, District Attorney
law.

The State used to fund a significant percentage of the cost of prosecuting adult criminal
offenders. That is no longer the case. State funds to cover the costs of extradition,          Benton County Courthouse
witness fees and deputy district attorney salaries have all been drastically reduced. It is    120 NW 4th Street
regrettable that the Oregon Legislative Assembly has opted to shift virtually all of the       Corvallis, OR 97333
direct costs associated with prosecuting State crimes to Oregon’s 36 counties. This            Telephone:
policy choice is inconsistent with the States continued decision to increase funding for
the trial courts and indigent defense.                                                         (541) 766-6815

The Fair Fund budget is divided into four cost centers. The four cost centers represent
                                                                                               Department Head:

Rentals is the most difficult cost center to grow as every building currently has some
type of event every week. The largest growth opportunity is to raise rates. The economic       Office Location:
study done in 2005 by Markin Consulting recommended large rate increases based on
market analysis. We increased rates 15% at the beginning of 2006 and increased                 110 SW 53rd Street
commercial rates 20% and private/non-profit group rates 10% at the beginning of 2007.          Corvallis, OR 97333
The budget reflects rate increases at the beginning of 2008 and again at the beginning of      Telephone:
2009. Expense items that have been increased in the budget are Utilities, Contractual
Services and Supply and Operating expense. These increases were made anticipating              (541)766-6521
rate and material cost increases.
                                                                                               FAX:
The County Fair is highly dependent on weather and our entertainment line-up for its
                                                                                        (541) 766-6865
success. We raised our parking prices 33%, reflected in the 08-09 budget. We also are
anticipating increases in revenue from carnival and food concessions based on
increased prices from the vendors to maintain their profit margins. Since the
Fairgrounds receives a percentage of gross receipts, our revenue will increase. Expense
items increased in the budget are Utilities, Contractual Services and Supply and Operating expense. These increases were made
anticipating rate and material cost increases.
Events operation saw a push for self-produced events in the 05-07 biennium. These types of ventures proved to be risky and costly to
produce. The Fairgrounds will continue to produce the successful events, such as the Rodeos, Flea Markets and the Holiday Bazaar. We
do not anticipate creating any new Fairground-produced events. With the new Fair Coordinator position filled, we will utilize that
position to solicit outside promoters to rent the facility rather than promoting our own events. To date, we have successfully solicited two
sports entertainment companies to promote events on a regular basis at the Fairgrounds. These types of events are reflected in the Arena
line item under the Rental cost center. The Event Cost Center will continue to be the smallest portion of the Fairgrounds and may be
merged with the Rental Cost Center in a future Budget process.
The RV Park has continued to be a strong revenue producer. From March to November, our weekends are often at capacity and we are
forced to create overflows spots throughout the Fairgrounds. We requested Capital Improvement Project funds to create two overflow
locations to relieve the congestion in the middle of the Fairgrounds. These two new overflow locations will help to increase our business
as it will be a more professional experience for the RV customers as well as those who rent our facilities.
There are several items that have affected the 05-07 budget and will continue to affect the 07-09 budget. Cost Allocation has increased
nearly 100+% since 2005 and is budgeted at a 4% increase per year through the next biennium.

                                                                           Health Services
Budget Note:
In the middle of the 2005-07 biennium the Board of Commissioners divided the Health Department into two departments. As a result of
the subsequent re-organization many traditional county public health services transferred to and budgeted within the Health Center Fund
in fiscal year 2004-05 and 2005-07 biennia are returned to the General Fund in the 2007-09 budget.
To ensure an appropriate comparison the budget table on the following page contains the combined budgets of the Health Center and
Health Department budgets. Following that page is discussion and presentation of the individual department budgets.
Also of note, unrestricted (discretionary) resource support for health services consists of the amount shown in the general revenue
category, which supports general fund operations and internal fund transfer of general revenues from the general fund (out of the
non-departmental budget) to the Health Center Fund. In the 2005-07 biennium the total budget allocation of general revenues (including
transfers to the Health Center Fund) for operating and working capital support was $6,970,027. In the 2007-09 biennium the general
revenue budget allocation (including transfers to the Health Center) is $5,553,739.
The Health Center shares business services (reception, billing, records, finance and budgeting functions) with the Health Department and
pays for these support services through a monthly internal service charge.

Budget Note:
The decline in budget is the result of two processes; 1) staff reductions due to re-alignment of staffing needs for medical clinic operations;
2) transfer of some functions of public health back to the general fund as a result of department and service reorganization. County general
fund support of the health center is represented in the amount of the internal fund transfer category.
The decline in the transfer from the General Fund is related to the transfer of services and budgets back to the general fund, not a reduction
in support for the clinic.

The County’s investment in Public Health Services has been adjusted following failure
of the 2006 local levy. Local general fund support for public health was reduced by             Department Head:
$1,250,000/year in the 07-09 biennium. Some changes in community health will be                 Tom Eversole
immediate, others particularly those averted by early childhood intervention, will take
years to see.                                                                                   Office Location:

Benton County stands out among Oregon counties as a healthy place to live, as reflected         Public Service Building
in the Health Status 2000 Report (see www.co.benton.or.us/health/press.php). In the             530 NW 27th Street
future, Benton County’s health status and capacity may more closely resemble the rest           Corvallis, OR 97330
of Oregon’s. In 2005, 75% of 2-year olds in Benton County had completed their initial           Telephone:
immunizations. In some Oregon counties, immunization rates ranged as low as 51%.
The number should be above 90%. Many Oregon health departments do not have the                  (541) 766-6835
capacity to respond to outbreaks of tuberculosis, measles, whooping cough, food
                                                                                                FAX:
poisoning or Norwalk virus as Benton County Health Department has done in the past.
Formerly local funding allowed the County to provide public mental health services              (541) 766-6899
beyond the bare minimum of treating persistent mental illness and suicide intervention,
unlike many other counties.                                                                     www.co.benton.or.us/health

Program and service changes from prior biennium
Environmental health services for food safety were subsidized by local general fund in
the past. With current reductions, the food safety program was made fee supported, shifting cost to the private sector. Similar fee
increases have been imposed for construction-related environmental health services.
Similarly, costs to administer travel and work-required immunizations must be increased to offset local revenue reductions. Public health
promotion to individuals at high risk for Hepatitis C and sexually transmitted infections will be reduced. The County’s highly successful
HIV Harm Reduction (needle exchange) program was proposed for elimination was restored by the Budget Committee. The priority to
stretch local revenues to maximize return on grant match dollars was the primary reason it was proposed for elimination. Based on 2006
figures, discontinuing the needle exchange program would have resulted in the discarding of over 60,000 used needles into the public
environment. Instead, these needles will continue to be safely collected.
Mental Health services will focus on crisis intervention and Medicaid-funded care. Residents with untreated mental illness will access
community based organizations and law enforcement for care. Addictions treatment for DUII will be reduced, costing some clients their
jobs.
Service objectives for the new biennium
Health Department will focus on state mandated public health and mental health: (1) monitoring and control of preventable diseases, (2)
parent and child health services including family planning, (3) collecting and reporting of health statistics, (4) health information and
referral (5) environmental health services, (6) mental health crisis services, (7) adult and child mental health services, (8) substance abuse
treatment, and (9) services for persons with developmental disabilities. An overarching goal for the department is to increase its
integration of all health services in a client-centered approach. The department will continue to strengthen collaborative efforts with the
non-profit and private health care sectors. Health Department staff will play an important but reduced role in public health emergency
preparedness (pandemic influenza and all-hazards emergencies such as earthquakes.)
Accomplishments and efficiencies
During 05-07, the Health Department improved the effectiveness and efficiency of its cost recovery (billing and collections) systems.
The department effected contracts with Medicaid and Medicare managed care organizations to increase revenue. Improved coding and
record keeping served to decrease the number of insurance claim denials. Improved client flow (through-put) and customer service as
well as enhanced practice management software increased revenue. Investment in electronic health records will further improve provider
efficiency and cost recovery.

Accomplishments:
      •   Increased wages for respite workers from $8 to $8.75
      •   Continued to expand foster care capacity by opening and licensing new homes
      •   Offered quarterly training and OIS training for foster care providers
      •   Implemented weekly payments for mental health residential and vocational providers
Objectives:
      • Work with state and local providers toward implementation of direct payments for mental health residential and vocational
          providers.
Budget Note:
Beginning with the new biennium the state will pay most developmentally disabled (DD) vocational and residential service providers
direct. The county will continue to perform case management and other administrative duties related to payments. The only consequence
of the change is reduction in resources and an equal amount of expenditures from the budget.

Function & Organization:
The department director is appointed by the Board of Commissioners. The Juvenile Department is organized into four programs.
County unrestricted funds support the Youth Offender Program, which consists of six Juvenile Counselors. Counselors provide a
continuum of services to a general caseload with the goal of community protection and practical rehabilitation.
The Intensive Supervision Program is funded by the Oregon Youth Authority. One Juvenile Counselor provides a high level of service
and supervision to serious and chronic youth offenders who are at risk of commitment to a youth correctional facility.
The Juvenile Accountability Program is funded by a combination of state, federal, and county funds. Two staff members supervise the
Community Service/Work Crew program. Through community service and work crew activities, juvenile offenders pay back the
community while learning skills and taking responsibility for their actions.
The Youth and Family Outreach Program is funded by the Commission on Children and Families. The program, operated by one Juvenile
Counselor, provides services to at-risk youths and their families to prevent juvenile crime, school dropouts, and substance abuse.

Budget Note:
The reserve in the general fund is in the Youth Outreach program and represents the maximum possible funding from state and federal
sources. Since the amount is still uncertain the department chose to allocate a portion to reserve. When the biennium amount is determined
the reserve will be reduced and/or distributed as appropriate.

The role of the Juvenile Department is that of a catalyst for developing safe communities
and healthy youth and families. We accomplish this by holding offenders accountable,         Juvenile Director:
building and maintaining community-based partnerships, implementing results-based            Al Krug
and outcome-driven services and practices, advocating for and addressing the needs of
victims, offenders, families and communities, and obtaining and sustaining sufficient        Office Location:

Budget reductions during the 2005-07 biennium forced the elimination of three                Suite 100
positions in the Juvenile Department. Two Juvenile Outreach Specialist positions were        Corvallis, OR 97333
cut and the Victim Offender Mediation Program was eliminated due to the loss of
                                                                                             Telephone:

In cooperation with Benton County Mental Health and the Jackson Street Youth Shelter,
the Juvenile Department co-sponsored six incentive activities serving seventy-two            (541) 766-6071
youths in 2006. Activities included a photography project led by the Corvallis Arts
Center, visits to Oregon State University and Linn Benton Community College, a day at
the Benton County Fair, and a geocaching expedition with Search & Rescue volunteers.
Benton County’s Juvenile Drug Treatment Court became operational in March of
2005. In December 2006, the first three youths graduated from the program. Drug Court
participants check in with the court weekly, receive random drug tests, and participate in drug & alcohol counseling through Benton
County Mental Health.
The department offers a Job Skills Group that teaches job search skills, filling out applications, resume-writing, interviewing, and
appropriate work attire and behavior. Students who successfully complete the course are eligible to apply for paid positions with the
ODOT Litter Patrol. The Juvenile Department contracts with the Oregon Department of Transportation to provide roadside litter patrol
services in Linn and Benton Counties. Twenty-one youths participated on litter patrol crews during the past year after completing the Job
Skills Group.
Challenges for the 2007-09 biennium include re-instituting the Teen Court Program and maintaining the Juvenile Drug Treatment Court.
Teen Court was discontinued by the Benton County Sheriff’s Office in November 2006. Plans include expanding the eligibility
requirements and providing more services and supervision to Teen Court clients. The department will also be exploring the possibility of
using student interns to help run the program.
The Juvenile Drug Treatment Court has survived thus far primarily due to in-kind contributions from the Juvenile Department and Benton
County Mental Health along with a small amount of funding from the state. The department in conjunction with its court partners will
continue to seek funding to maintain court services.

This budget is a significant change from past years in that we will face personnel               Department Head:
shortages in most all divisions of the Sheriff’s Office. This will of course affect our
service delivery and our ability to respond to emergencies involving public safety.              Diana Simpson, Sheriff
For the first time since SB1145 was implemented (1996), revenue from the State of                Office Location:

Division will be unable to provide 24/7 coverage. Early each morning, the county will
not have patrol coverage for about four hours. A system will be implemented in which             Telephone:
deputies will respond to life threatening situations and other significant events during
that time period, but because the deputies are not on duty their response time may be            (541) 766-6858
reduced.                                                                                         FAX:
The Corrections Facility will continue to look at cost savings measures and several have         (541) 766-6011
already been implemented: significant changes in meal service resulting in
considerable savings, changes in inmate clothing, and changes in commissary and
telephone systems.
Emergency Management will continue to focus on emergency preparedness, especially
focusing on partnerships with Oregon State University, Samaritan Health Services,
Hewlett-Packard, along with our rural communities.
The Sheriff’s Office will continue to utilize grant opportunities to fund radio inter-operability with our federal and state partners, but will
also continue to work with Corvallis Police Department to provide the best and safest coverage possible. Efforts are underway to install
additional radio towers that should provide the coverage necessary to ensure deputies and residents receive the communication to
maintain their safety.
Despite the budget shortfall resulting in reduced personnel and reduced services, the Sheriff’s Office is committed to providing the most
professional, most accountable, and the most responsive service within our means.

Budget Note:
This budget and the Transition Program on the previous page are paid for entirely by a dedicated local option property tax levy. Voters
approved the levy and a maximum tax rate of $0.29/1000 of assessed value (AV) for the tax years 2004 through 2008. In tax year 2006 the
rate was lowered to $0.26/1000 AV and the 2007-09 biennium budget continues the rate at $0.26/1000 AV for both 2007 and 2008 tax
years.
Space for up to 40 prisoners are rented from Lincoln and Yamhill counties, effectively doubling the space available for county prisoners.
It is likely the levy will be put out for renewal in November of 2008 for the 2009-11 and 2011-13 biennia.

                                               Natural Areas & Parks
Function & Organization:
In April 2003, the Board of Commissioners renamed the Parks Department to Natural Areas and Parks Department to reflect the addition
of restoration, habitat preservation, and education activities to the recreation component. Major departmental functions include natural
areas, parks, adult corrections work crew, campground, natural resource and trails management and operation, county buildings’ grounds
maintenance, Crystal Lake Cemetery operations and maintenance, management of Concessionaire contract to operate Adair Clubhouse
facility, and community project management associated with grants, economic development and other resources. The department
presently manages over 1,400 acres, with the dominant component in natural areas. The parks system encompasses a broad range of
resources for people of all ages, interests and abilities. For example: Jackson-Frazier Wetland has a barrier free boardwalk, allowing
folks in wheelchairs easy access to this beautiful resource; Fort Hoskins Historic Park is on the National Historic Register and interprets
our rich history; Adair Park is developed to provide for large group picnics, includes a recently constructed children’s play area and an
18-hole Disc Golf Course; Salmonberry Campground, one of four Alsea River parks, provides a camping experience in this beautiful
valley; Crystal Lake Cemetery, also on the National Register of Historic Places, and is supported by a volunteer ‘friends group’ to help
promote this site as an educational and cultural resource; Beazell Memorial Forest, our largest resource at 586 acres, is being developed
for both passive recreation and forest education purposes; the completion of the Beazell Forest Education Center has added an all-season
facility to the system. These are some examples of the diversity supported within our parks system.
A Natural Areas and Parks Advisory Board is appointed by the Board of Commissioners to advise the Department and Board of
Commissioners. There are also advisory groups to oversee Jackson-Frazier Wetland and Fort Hoskins Historic Park.

Benton County’s Natural Areas & Parks Department is responsible for managing over
                                                                                               NAPD Department Head:
1400 acres of public lands, including parks, natural areas, historic sites, and wetlands.
To assist in overseeing these objectives, the Benton County Board of Commissioners             George McAdams, Acting in Capacity
adopted the Parks Department’s Comprehensive Plan in July 1995. Additionally,
management plans have been developed for our major resource parks; Fort Hoskins                Office Location:
Historic Park, Beazell Memorial Forest, Fitton Green Natural Area, and                         Avery Facility
Jackson-Frazier Wetland. A Trail System plan is also in effect to guide trail                  360 SW Avery Avenue
development for the community. These documents encourage effective planning and                Corvallis, OR 97333
serve to coordinate conservation, preservation, and development of the County’s
investments managed by the Department.                                                         Telephone:

Over 40 years of effort have been dedicated to site acquisition, planning, and                 (541) 766-6871
development of the present Natural Areas & Parks System. The system’s dedicated
                                                                                               FAX:
staff includes, Department Head, Administrative Assistant, Community Project
Coordinator [position vacant], Parks Superintendent; Park Maintenance Ranger [2],              (541) 766-6891
Landscape Gardener, Park Caretakers [2], and limited seasonal personnel. Three citizen
advisory boards and numerous partners both private and public have assisted the
Department’s success at service delivery to the community.
Benton County Natural Areas & Parks is acknowledged as one of the most well
maintained systems in the state. Our system is also known for its comprehensive
planning, low maintenance and people-friendly facilities, and thrift in accomplishing tasks.
The 2005-07 biennium saw an increase in partnerships through resource restoration work and successful grant applications. Examples of
three such efforts are: 1. Management of the grant/process for a Benton County Prairie Species Habitat Conservation Plan to create a
sustainable future for sensitive species, associated habitats, and our county’s residents; 2. Completion of the Beazell Forest Education
Center (BFEC) facility and establishment of education partnerships with local Benton County school groups and forest education
providers; 3. Continuation of long-term Restoration and Stewardship Projects at Jackson-Frazier Wetland, Beazell Memorial Forest,
Fitton Green Natural Area, and Fort Hoskins Historic Park, provided through partnership and funding with US Fish & Wildlife, Oregon
Watershed Enhancement Board, Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife, and others. These and other successful projects were
accomplished with extensive use of volunteers, staff, fund raising - both public and private, and inter-agency cooperation. Indications of
Natural Areas & Parks support are the annual operations budget, consistent positive survey results, park use, and our many motivated
volunteers. The department has been able to accomplish so much by working with the community on prioritized goals.
The 2007-09 biennium the department expects a continuation of current service levels with the possible exception of Community Project
Coordinator activities. The Department met its budget target by incorporating the Avery Facility proposal (1-10-2007), which maintains
the Natural Areas & Parks Director as Acting in Capacity (AIC) for the first year of the biennium and in the second year covers the
Landscape Gardener position with a transfer from the Facilities budget. The primary advantages of this action is to stabilize Avery
services and personnel for one year while County funding options are examined; maintains critical skill levels within Avery at this critical
time; maximizes decision makers’ options and flexibility; defers for one year department head recruitment during a time when the County
is facing layoffs; in the short term (one year) decreases staff uncertainty and thereby reduces the risk of unwanted attrition. Through this
action will allow the department to avoid significant park closures and personnel reductions.
The department will continue and strengthen our partnerships in order to fulfill our mission.
“Benton County Parks Department serves the interests and pursuits of Benton County and residents by providing access to natural,
historic, and recreational areas and conserving, restoring, and developing parkland investments.”
An example of our on-going pursuit of service delivery through partnership is the Youth Community Work Crew, which is supported by
Juvenile, Public Works and Natural Areas & Parks Departments. This inter-department effort puts needed manpower at the Crystal Lake
Cemetery with youth crew members acquiring a sense of place and appreciation of community work, as one of the many outcomes. The
Department will strive to continue such efforts as opportunities present themselves.

Purpose:
Benton County is developing a Prairie Species Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) to balance conservation of rare species and their habitats
with economic growth and development in the County. The HCP will cover eight rare and endangered species that occur in local prairie
habitats. The HCP will cover the County’s activities, and potentially the activities of private landowners that affect these species. The

The 2005-07 biennium was marked by significant increases in material and energy
costs. These increases have a substantial impact on the road and facility programs and to    Department Head:
a lesser extent the motor pool and Special Transportation programs. Despite recent           Roger Irvin
declines in fuel prices, the cost of petroleum based products is expected to remain high
through the next biennium. Maintenance and/or replacements will be deferred in the           Office Location:
Road, Facilities, and Motor Pool to balance these budgets for the 2007-09 biennium and       Avery Complex
release some funds to assist with the General and Road Fund shortfalls.                      360 SW Avery Avenue
Positions have been left vacant as incumbents have left over the past year allowing the      Corvallis, OR 97333
department to avoid layoffs in this biennium. The three Avery site departments have          Telephone:
also worked together to share positions, eliminate redundancy, and develop creative
approaches to contain expenses.                                                              (541) 766-6821
Road Fund                                                                                    FAX:
Dedicated road maintenance funding from vehicle use fees has not substantially               (541) 766-6891
increased in over 10 years. The impact has been partially mitigated through project
specific grants, doing work for other agencies, and reductions in levels of service. The
loss of federal forest funding will reduce revenue by almost $300,000 in the biennium
even after the one-year extension. Material costs, which comprise approximately 30%
of the road budget, increased dramatically in the last biennium—crushed aggregate
68%, Asphalt 33%, Sign Materials 27%, and Traffic Paint 111%, Fuel 62%
Specific actions in the budget to the balance road fund were:

    •   Eliminate oil mats and fog seals
    •   Eliminate gravel road stabilization program
    •   Reduce aggregate for gravel road maintenance by 25%
    •   Reduce pavement striping 32%
    •   Reduce sign fabrication and installation 30%
    •   Reduce road fund staff by four positions
    •   Defer equipment replacement for one year
In the adopted budget, $400,000 was provided from the general fund for road surface maintenance. This will allow the department to do a
combination of chip seals, oil mats and overlays during the biennium. The Budget Committee left the decision to the department as to the
most effective use of these funds among surface maintenance options. In future biennia, there is no promise of continued funding.
Facilities Program
The county facility program has been sustainable over the years, collecting sufficient funds through the uniform rental rate to avoid
deferring any maintenance or major repair. To assist the general fund the department proposes to defer half of the major maintenance
projects for one year. One year should not adversely affect the stability of the program. Additionally, Facilities will assume the cost of
building grounds maintenance from Natural Areas and Parks (NAPD) in the second year of the biennium by raising the uniform rental
rate. This will help NAPD meet their CURF target. The transfer of grounds maintenance costs to the facility program will require a
uniform rental rate increase of about $0.045 per square foot in the second year of the biennium.
Motor Pool Program
The Motor Pool has sustained its operation through a combination of vehicle and equipment rental rates for County Departments and a
significant amount of work for other agencies that shares in the overhead cost. Non law enforcement vehicle and equipment replacements
will be deferred for one year to return a portion of the equipment sinking fund to the road fund.
Special Transportation Program
This program is in relatively good shape due to a stable revenue stream from users and adequate federal funding through a variety of
programs. Funding is adequate for operations and vehicle replacement and repair.

         2) Expense of county contributions to community agencies or services
         3) Contracts for specific services such as veterans assistance and economic development activities
         4) Account for statutorily restricted resources not associated with regular department services or functions

Management of the non-department budget is a responsibility of the Budget and the Finance Divisions of the Administrative Services
Department.

Accomplishments:
      • Reconstruct and pave 2.1 miles of Mary’s River Road including the intersection of Long and Fort Hoskins Road.
Objectives:
      • Divert first $200,000 of annual state forest payments to this account.
      • Replace Hoskins Road bridge over Bottger Creek.
      • General maintenance on designated roads
Budget Note:
Oregon law allows the county to divert state forest payments to maintain roads that service state forest lands. This diversion occurs before
other districts, the county and schools receive payments based on the statutory distribution formula. The statute also requires the payment
to the road fund be in the form of reimbursement for actual work performed. In 2002 the Board of Commissioners adopted resolutions
designating specific county roads serving state forests in Benton County and establishing a policy of diverting $200,000 annually from
state forest payments. The road fund is reimbursed periodically for work on designated roads and any balances are roll-over to future
years.

Accomplishments:
    • Financed a recycling depot for the South Benton Community Center.                      The county files a lien for costs on
    • Allowed Benton Furniture Share to expand their participation in the campus             property on which clean up funds are
      cleanup at OSU, Spring Cleanup in Corvallis, and Fall Cleanup in Philomath.            expended.
    • Supported Benton Habitat for Humanity's Discount Home and Building Supply
      Store diverting over 200 tons per year of materials from the landfill while
      providing a valuable community service.
    • Funded the Get SMART! Resource Efficiency Program and diverted 11.5 tons of materials from the landfill, conserved 64,860
      KWh of energy, and saved 248,830 gallons of water
Objectives:
    • Maintain $50,000 account for property clean up
Budget Note:
    • There has been no “excess” surcharge deposits since 2003 and it is unlikely there will be in the future under the current policy.
       SWAC grants were curtailed in 2007 because of declining balances. It is likely the road fund contribution will also have to be
       reduced or eliminated in order to maintain the clean up account in the 2009-11 biennia.

Benton Opportunity Fund. By policy the account balance is available for low or moderate income housing or economic development
activities, The money is typically used as a source of no or low cost interim development loans until permanent project financing is
obtained by the project sponsor. In some cases small project grants can be approved by the Board of Commissioners.

Schedule Adjustments:
Salary ranges shown are as of July 1, 2007. As of that date contract negotiations had been concluded with two of the three employee
bargaining units. In addition, the Board of Commissioners had approved schedule adjustments for non-represented positions, Sheriff and
the county supplemental to the District Attorney’s state salary. As required by the county charter, the citizen members of the Budget
Committee reviewed and adjusted the salary of the Commissioners.
The county was in negotiations with the Benton County Deputy Sheriffs Association (BCDSA) when the budget was adopted. The salary
range shown is for the 2006-07contract period. BCDSA positions are indicated with an asterisk (*).
The table shows current contract language for schedule adjustments for the period of the 2007-09 biennium. The budget was planned
based on 2.5% annual adjustment to the 2006-07 schedule.

FTE Distribution Table:
This table shows the distribution and monthly salary range of regular (benefitted) hire positions in the 2007-09 Adopted Budget. To be a
benefitted position (eligible for health insurance, retirement, etc) a position must be assigned a budget FTE of .50 or better. The salary
range shown is for a full-time (40 hour week) employee. The number of positions in that salary range are expressed in FTE’s (Full Time
Equivalent). One (1) FTE is equal to one person working a 40 hour week equaling 2,080 annual hours (40 x 52 weeks).
The table shows number of FTE by title and salary range associated with that department in the budget. Some costs of positions are
allocated to more than one department. A position with an FTE below .50 FTE would indicate a position whose costs are distributed
among two or more departments. Also, while not indicated in this table, a few positions have costs split (shared) between more than one
fund within the same department.
Each standard salary schedule grade has six steps (except elected offices). There are a very few positions that for market or contract
reasons may have a seventh or eighth step equivalent. Not all of the positions on those grades have access to the seventh/eighth step and so
only the standard top step is shown.

                                              Discretionary Income Pool

Discretionary income is a super-category which defines the total pool of resources from all sources that are available for any legal purpose
of county government. The table below contains the schedule of discretionary income by year anticipated. A consideration in budgeting is
whether the income source will be reoccurring to maintaining ongoing expenditures in future biennia. Budget allocation decisions were
made on the basis of whether the resource was likely to continue or was only a one-time occurrence.

                                               Allocation of Property Taxes
The table shows the amount of property tax expected to be collected in the 2007-09 biennium (excluding the proposed local option levy).
The table translates these taxes into the approximate share of the tax rate required to support the budget allocation.
For example: The District Attorney function is allocated 8% of resources from the General Revenue category. That is equivalent to 7% of
property taxes and equal to about 17 cents of the total tax rate of $2.4652 per 1000 of taxable value. For each $100,000 of taxable value the
tax cost of the District Attorney function is $16.98 per year.

Budget Note:
In general, budget allocations to contingency and reserve are intended for expenditure in the current biennium only in the case of
emergency or unforeseeable event. Expenditures are never charged to these accounts. The Board of Commissioners must formally act on
a resolution to transfer an amount from contingency or reserve to the area of the budget requiring additional expenditure authority.
Unappropriated balance can not be used to fund services in the biennium except in the case of natural disaster or extreme civil disruption
as defined in the law. The purpose of unappropriated balance is to reserve a certain amount of resources for working capital and/or to
explicitly save resources for use in a future budget period.
The table itemizes General Fund contingency, reserve and unappropriated balance because there is a mix of unrestricted and restricted
accounts. By definition contingency, reserve and unappropriated amounts in other funds are dedicated to the purposes of that fund.

                                           County Service Districts
Among the types of special districts that can be created under Oregon law are county service districts. Service districts are organized and
derive authority from ORS Chapter 451. Service districts are separate governmental entities from county government, however the Board
of Commissioners is the governing body of each district. Districts may have its own staff and operating procedures, however in Benton
County’s case all districts are managed by county departments and generally follow county procedures and processes.
Districts can be created directly by the Board of Commissioners or through an initiative process. Districts may not levy property taxes
unless authorized by a vote of the people. Districts are organized to provide specific services as defined in its organizing documents and as
allowed by state law.
Benton County has six activity service districts. The purpose of five districts is related to the provision of water and/or sewer utility
services. One district provides funding for library operations. Two of the districts operate with two-year budgets, like the county. Four
districts operate with annual budgets.

The collection of delinquent taxes will decline                     1%
below the 2005-07 estimate because the rate of
collection of current taxes remains high. State
forest revenues will decline slightly based on
recent trends. Interest earnings will be modest
because the district does not hold large balances                                                          Property Taxes

($17,600) pays for district administrative costs
including publication of legal notices, auditing
and reimbursement to Benton County for
accounting and treasury management services.

year will begin July 1, 2007 and end on June 30, 2008.
Beginning July 1, 2006, the District began charging a late fee to delinquent accounts. The change did not have a significant budget impact,
but allowed the District to recover the actual costs of processing past due accounts.

The adopted budget is predicated on approval of a new water rate order. The order will increase the water base rate $5 per month and
refine usage tier charges. The new rate order has been adopted by the Governing Body. The increase is necessary to stop the depletion of
the capital fund for operating expenses. The rate adjustment was recommended by the Advisory Committee. There is no increase
proposed or assumed for sewer services.

The district was created as a condition of subdivision development to provide water            (541) 766-6821
service.
An advisory committee reviews district operation and makes recommendations on
issues and rates to the governing body.
Budget Discussion:
This is an annual budget.The fiscal year begins on July 1, 2007 and ends on June 30, 2008.
Beginning July 1, 2006, the District began charging a late fee to delinquent accounts and increased the turn-on/turn-off fee. The changes
did not have a significant budget impact, but allowed the District to recover the actual costs of processing these services.
The adopted budget is predicated on an increase in rates. The order will increase the base rate by $2.00 per month and add $0.25 to each
tier of the usage charge. That order has been adopted by the Governing Body. This increase is necessary to stop the depletion of the capital
(construction) fund for operating expenses. The rate change was recommended by the Advisory Committee.

In February1997, the Benton County Health Department completed a health hazard                Location:
assessment for the area know as the “South Third Area”, which identified failing septic
                                                                                              360 SW Avery
systems throughout the area. The South Third Area lies within the Urban Growth
                                                                                              Corvallis
Boundary of Corvallis, but is currently outside of the city limits. The area is along South
Third Street (Hwy99W), and includes the area between the railroad tracks on the west          Telephone:
and the bank of the Booneville Slough on the east. On the north, it includes the land
along both sides of Kiger Island Drive, and stretches south to just beyond Airport Road.      (541) 766-6821
The health hazard assessment was adopted by the Benton County Board of
Commissioners on May 7, 1997, and confirmed that the South Third area was at the top
of the County’s Environmental Assessment Priority List.
The district was organized in 2001. It serves the residents south of Corvallis in a
designated health hazard area. The district serves 38 properties and 41 customers. An advisory committee reviews district operations and
makes recommendations on issues and rates to the governing body.
Waste is piped to a connection to the Corvallis sewage system for processing. District rates cover processing fees and accumulation for
other operating and maintenance expenses.
Budget Discussion:
This is an annual budget. The fiscal year starts on July 1, 2007 and ends on June 30, 2008.
Beginning July 1, 2006, the district began charging a late fee to delinquent accounts. The change did not have a significant budget impact,
but allowed the district to recover the actual costs of processing past due accounts. No rate adjustments are proposed or assumed in the
budget.

Accomplishments:
    • Used a portion of surplus cash from assessment payoffs to reduce the debt service schedule by three years
Objectives:
    • Make principle and interest payments when due
    • Monitor for delinquencies
    • Periodically evaluate possibilities for prepayment of bonds when surplus cash is available
Budget Discussion:
Annual principle and interest payments are $14,460 per year. When there is sufficient cash available the county will periodically evaluate
additional prepayment of bonds.
