Management and Budget


The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) annually prepares the Lucas County Appropriation Budget, the Lucas County Capital Budget, and the Lucas County Annual Information Statement.

The analysts maintain a liaison with assigned departments for budgeting and contractual issues, formulate recommendations, and perform analyses for the Lucas County Administrator and the Board of Lucas County Commissioners regarding operations, policy issues, and financial concerns. The office maintains the fiscal health of Lucas County and provides revenue projections and debt management to meet the changing financial needs of the County.

This office is also responsible for the monitoring of prevailing wages for all Lucas County public improvement projects, pursuant to Chapter 4115 of the Ohio Revised Code. The Bureau of Wage and Hour Division of the Ohio Department of Commerce acts as the State-level enforcement agency for prevailing wage-related matters.

Furthermore, the collection of County lodging taxes, as permitted by Chapter 5739 of the Ohio Revised Code, is coordinated by the Office of Management and Budget. The local rule for county lodging tax is the Lucas County Hotel/Motel Tax Code of Regulations.

The Risk Management division falls under the direction of the Office of Management and Budget.
