Inyo County approved budget closer to ‘normal’ after COVID

After approving the fiscal year 2022-2023 budget for Inyo County, the Inyo County Board of Supervisors and staff bid Inyo County Chief Administrator Leslie Chapman fond farewell upon her retirement. Chapman’s career included working for the administrations of Inyo and Mono counties.

After the meeting, the board and staff enjoyed cake.

After a couple of years of COVID-related anxiety that injected plenty of uncertainty and guesswork into the county budgeting process, the recently approved fiscal year 2022-23 county budget signals a return to a more predictable fiscal future.

The Inyo County Board of Supervisors approved the budget on Tuesday after making a few minor changes to accommodate a higher-than anticipated fund balance carried over from the final accounting of last year’s budget.
