Cost of Community Services: Okanogan County, Washington

At the request of the Methow Conservancy, American Farmland Trust (AFT) conducted a Cost of Community Services (COCS) study to find out the current net fiscal impact of existing land uses in Okanogan County. The study analyzes revenues and expenditures on a land use basis for fiscal year 2005 (year ending December 31). It examines revenues by land use and the financial demands of public services (e.g., public works, sheriff, planning, general government) and shows the cost of providing these services to residential, commercial and industrial, farm, forest, and open land use, as well as land not in private ownership.
