Elrich Seeks Residents’ Input During Series of Budget Forums

County Executive Marc Elrich is holding a series of budget forums on the county’s next operating budget – Fiscal Year 23.  Residents are invited to attend the forums in person or view them virtually via the internet.

The purpose of the forums is to gather input from residents about their priorities for the next fiscal year.  “Community and resident involvement is essential to the process of developing a budget that reflects our values and goals,” said County Executive Elrich in a statement announcing the forums.

The first step in the county budget process is the responsibility of the County Executive. Elrich submits a recommended budget to the County Council by March 15. Then the Council has two months to adopt a final budget by late May. The Fiscal Year 23 operating budget will go into effect on July 1, 2022.

The FY23 budget forums will be held:

The forums will be streamed live on the County’s Facebook page. County residents can view the meeting live on County Cable Montgomery on Comcast Channel 6 or 996 HD; RCN Channel 6 or 1056 HD; or Verizon Channel 30.
