General fund budget - FY2018 quarterly financial reporting to the Department for Local Government (Uniform Financial Information Report); 117 Counties reported information to DLG in FY2018. Wolfe County did not report for 2018 and therefore 2016 data are used, which is the most recent year for which data are available.
