This publication takes a close look at county funds that lie outside out of the general fund. In general, these special and dedicated funds are either (a) under the control of an elected official instead of the county commissioners, (b) funds administered by both an elected official and the commissioners, or (c) funds that the commissioners may spend only for specific purposes. The authors emphasize that this is not an exhaustive list of special and dedicated funds, but it does go over the most common. Included are citations to the statutory authority for the fund, any Attorney General opinions regarding the fund, as well as a description of the fund and who controls it.
