County Executive is Holding Series of Virtual FY22 Budget Forums, with Next One on Thursday, Oct. 8

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich is holding a series of virtual forums about priorities for the Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) Operating Budget and the Capital Improvements Program (CIP) budget. The next forum will be held starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8, and will focus on the operating budget. Each of the forums will be hosted via Microsoft Teams.

“I am hopeful that our virtual format will allow more residents to participate in these forums,” said County Executive Elrich. “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. 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 schedule for upcoming budget forums:
County Executive Elrich will transmit his Recommended FY22 Capital Budget and amendments to the FY21-26 CIP to the County Council on Jan. 15. The County Executive will transmit his Recommended FY22 Operating Budget to the County Council on March 15. The Council will approve the budgets at the end of May.
