ACHD Budget Fiscal Year 2017 - 2018

ACHD Commissioners adopted a $117.9 million spending plan on August 23, 2017 which includes a record-setting number of projects to increase safety and mobility, and also provides for the maintenance and operation of Ada County's roads, sidewalks, traffic signals, bike lanes and related infrastructure. The budget includes an unprecedented $60.7 million capital program with 130 projects, including:


For the first time in nine years, the budget includes a property tax increase with the ACHD Commission majority authorizing $2.2 million in new revenue, which includes a three-percent increase in the general tax rate ($1 million), as well as an increase for the value of new construction added to the county's tax roll ($1.2 million). Combined, it equals a 6.4 percent increase in the year-over-year property tax revenue.

ACHD’s road infrastructure was recently rated, for the second consecutive year, as the best in the Northwest to include Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, and was also rated as in the top echelons across the County for Urban / Rural roads. “What we do touches everybody’s life, every day,” said Commissioner Sara Baker, noting that the ACHD’s $3 billion system includes sidewalks, bike lanes and roads rated as some of the nation’s best. “I’m proud of our budget.”
