I know that various levels of government do some weird things with accounting, but you're going to have to help me with the math here. Google says that Yamhill County has a fraction over 100,000 citizens. If the County has a budget that is a small bit under $100 million, then how do you arrive at the $508 per citizen number? 100,000 citizens times $508 per person means the County's budget should be $50 million, right?

This is probably a question with an easy answer, but I can't figure the answer using the math my teacher gave me in 2nd grade all those years ago.

The per capita numbers reflect the actual amount expended by the county, which was $51.5 million, rather than the total budget, which includes things such as reserves.
