About the Budget Explorer

Welcome to Anoka County's tool for helping you learn more about the county's budget.  Our goal is to make the budget process more open and transparent.

The county budget is large and complex, but the Budget Explorer lets you break it down and look at the smallest, simplest pieces.  You can explore not only the current budget adopted for this year but also compare it to the two previous years.

The Budget Explorer gives you multiple ways to see the county budget:

  • Rate Calculations: Shows how Net Tax Capacity, Net Tax Levy, and Estimated County Tax Rate are calculated.  Go to Rate Calculations.
  • Budget by Object: Like any household, Anoka County makes a budget with categories for income and expenses.  The Budget by Object tool lets you see the county's total amount for broad categories, such as revenues from taxes and expenditures for salaries and benefits.  Then it lets you drill down to the details, such as how much the county spent on health insurance last year.  Go to Budget by Object.
  • Budget by Program: County government has many responsibilities.  To show what it costs to meet those responsibilities, Anoka County breaks its total budget down into program areas and then into individual departments.  Within departments you can see details, such as expenditures for computers and supplies.  Go to Budget by Program.

The Budget Explorer is a work in progress.  We welcome your comments and suggestions for improvement.  Please send them by email to PublicInfo@co.anoka.mn.us.

Thank you!
