Public Budget Forums Underway throughout County

Public budget forums are held each year to get feedback from residents about their priorities, concerns, issues and questions about the recommended Operating Budget that County Executive Ike Leggett will present in March to the County Council.

The forums for the FY2016 Operating Budget -- all begin at 7 p.m.-- are being held throughout the County during January at the according to the following schedule:
See the Power Point presentation (pdf) that is part of each forum.

Join Montgomery County’s conversation about the FY16 Operating Budget on social media and help raise awareness by using #MontCoFY16budgetforum.


  1. Only Silver Spring and Bethesda ... that's the whole county? Mr. Leggett should take the bus to those places.

  2. The fact that Silver Spring is the postal address for two of the three remaining budget forums is deceiving, but these sessions actually cover two large sections of the County. The one on the 20th is in the eastern part; the one on the 22nd is in the central portion -- including areas from Wheaton to Olney. Two previous forums were held in Germantown and Downtown Silver Spring. The latter forum was covered by County Cable Montgomery and can be seen at http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/ccm/.
