Leggett to Hold Budget Forums in July
Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) will be holding five public forums on the county’s next six-year capital construction budget during July. The forums will help define construction and planning priorities for the regions in the County as officials develop the fiscal years 2015 to 2020 Capital Improvements Program (CIP) budget. Leggett and members of the Regional Citizens Advisory boards will attend the forums, which are sponsored by the Regional Services Centers and the Office of Management and Budget.
The CIP includes the costs for new or renovated major construction projects including roads, public schools, Montgomery College facilities, water and sewer lines, parks, libraries, health and recreation facilities, and other public buildings.
All the forums will begin with an informal open house at 6:30 p.m. followed by a formal presentation and question-and-answer session from 7 to 8 p.m. The schedule for the forums:
