How to View Porter County's Budgets
The Porter County Auditor's Office has prepared the following documents, which contain two years of adopted budget totals in an easy-to-read format. Simply click on the links below to view the budgets.
Please note: Porter County's 2020 budgets are currently undergoing a state review and will not be finalized until the county's budget order is issued.
Beginning in 2019, the Porter County Council included an appropriation in the adopted budget for longevity pay for eligible county employees. Up until this year, longevity was paid out only after additional appropriations were approved by the council during the course of the year.
At its June, 2019 meeting, the Porter County Council adopted a revised longevity policy that clarifies when longevity will be paid out and who is eligible. To view the policy, click here: Longevity Policy.
How to View Any Local Government Budget
Local government units -- from the county to schools to townships -- are required to post their adopted budgets on the state's informational portal, Gateway. From this site, you can access any budget for any taxing unit -- anywhere in Indiana.
Go to the Indiana Gateway website. From there, you can choose from a variety of local government financial information. One way to access a specific budget is to click on "Report Builder." Then choose the budget data you wish to access.
