Elrich Budget Seeks Sustainability, Invests in Early Childhood Education

County Executive Marc Elrich released his recommended Fiscal Year 2020 Operating Budget of $5.723 billion in all funds on March 15. The budget is designed to begin delivering on the promises Elrich made to County residents during his campaign for County Executive.

The budget increases County spending on the Montgomery County Public Schools system by $51.1 million and holds property taxes at the Charter Limit by reducing the tax rate by two-tenths of one cent per $100 assessed valuation.
