Julie Moore

Assistant to the County Manager for Budget & Strategic Planning

Julie Moore has almost 20 years professional experience and serves as Assistant to the County Manager for Budget & Strategic Planning. In this role, Moore is responsible for Macon-Bibb County’s strategic plan, annual budget development process, entitlement and project-based grants, and the strategic, capital, and operational planning process. She has developed four budgets in the first two years of the consolidated government, and has led the process which reduced the budget by 18% from the combined budgets of the two former governments.

Moore also helped develop Macon-Bibb County’s first Forward Together Strategic Plan, which earned a Silver Circle Award from the national City-County Communications and Marketing Association (3CMA) in the Printed Publication (Other). In the comments, the judges said of the Plan: “Overall a great project – well executed and designed. Clean and thorough. Great use of graphics, infographics, and design. Citizens had to feel informed with this nicely designed strategic plan document. Good use of photos and a great starting point for a new government. Very nice.”

Prior to this position with Macon-Bibb, Moore served the City of Macon first as Grants Manager and then as Acting Assistant Chief Administrative Officer. Before working with city government, she was Executive Director of Education First for 10 years, a Regional Sales Representative with Edulink Systems, and a Classroom Teacher with the Griffin-Spalding County School System.

Moore is currently pursuing her National Grants Management Certification and earned her Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from Chapman University. A 2005 Graduate of Leadership Macon, she was on the Georgia Planning Team for Knowledge Works and National Commission on Teaching and the Future and was in the inaugural class of the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education’s Education Policy Fellowship Program.
