King County’s first biennial budget highlights secure families and communities as it meets mandated responsibilities

On Nov. 17, the King County Council gave its unanimous approval to the County’s first Biennial (two-year) Budget, a $9 billion plan that revives the King County Sheriff’s Domestic Violence Unit and preserves King County’s AAA bond rating by not using the County’s cash reserves or tapping the rainy day fund.

The Council-adopted budget contains temporary funding to keep open Public Health clinics in Federal Way, White Center, Auburn, and Northshore. Partnerships and collaboration between the county, local jurisdictions and other community agencies helped secure the needed funding.

The budget also maintains Metro bus bus service at existing levels, preserves appropriate reserves, and increases funding for transit’s alternative services delivery program. The budget does not restore service lost under the 2014 transit cuts, which were the largest cuts in Metro history.
