Looking for Residents’ Input, Elrich Holds Virtual Budget Forums

County Executive Marc Elrich is holding a series of virtual budget forums to receive input from residents about their priorities for the next fiscal year.

Most of the forums will be broken into regions and will cover the county’s capital budget and capital improvements program. Another two forums will be devoted to the county’s operating budget. The forums will be hosted through Microsoft Teams.

“I am hopeful that our virtual format will allow more residents to participate in these forums. Even though we cannot be together, this new format should enable us to discuss with residents the County’s budget process for Fiscal Year 2022,” said Elrich. “COVID-19 has changed how the government delivers services, and this virtual forum may make it easier for more residents to participate and engage with the process. We hope you will join us to listen, learn, ask questions and let us know what is important to you.”

The FY22 Budget forums will be held:

  •  Monday, Sept. 21: FY22 County Operating Budget Forum – 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Sept. 30: FY22 County Operating Budget Forum — 7 pm.
  • Thursday, Oct. 8: Citizens Advisory Board/CIP Forum, Mid County – 7 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Oct. 13: Citizens Advisory Board/CIP Forum, Bethesda – 7 p.m.
  • Monday, Oct. 26: Citizens Advisory Board/CIP Forum, Up County – 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 28: Citizens Advisory Board/CIP Forum, Silver Spring – 7 p.m.

Join Microsoft Teams to participate.

The Sept. 21 and 30 meetings will be streamed live on the County’s website and Facebook page and on the YouTube channel. County residents can view the meeting live with closed captioning on County Cable Montgomery on Comcast Channel 6 or 996 HD; RCN Channel 6 or 1056 HD; or Verizon Channel 30.
