The County Executive released his Recommended Operating Budget today, and now it is up to the County Council to consider his proposals and approve a final budget at the end of May. We will hold our public hearings on the budget on April 8-10. To sign up to speak call 240-777-7803. If you can't make the hearings, you can also let us know your views by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, check the Council's Web site for regular budget updates.
