Financial Impacts Now and Future
Initial budget recommendations must be made soon, and we believe it is important to share financial impacts with those of you who enjoy the services of CSU Extension in Jefferson County.
The Jeffco Extension 2020 budget was reduced by nearly $70,000. Reductions were made across all county divisions in the general fund because of TABOR limitations.
Extension staff minimized impact to the public by reducing supplies and services with least effect on our programs. The staff anticipated that we could manage with those cuts for one year and recoup in 2021.
Lacking approval of the 2019 November ballot measure, however, the county is again faced with cuts for 2021. For Extension, the cuts will have much greater impact on the services we are able to provide.
