County Council Receives County Executive's Proposed FY 2015 County Budget
The Prince George’s County Council is pleased
to commence its role in the budget process today as we receive the County
Executive's budget proposal. The Council takes its responsibility as the
stewards of our constituents' tax dollars very seriously, and we will seek to
preserve fiscal responsibility and pursue investments in important priorities
to the quality of life in our County.
The Council and our Legislative Branch staff
look forward to collaboratively working with the County Executive and his team
to produce a final budget that reflects our shared values, and strengthens the
communities we represent.
Pursuant to the County Charter the County
Council must adopt a new and balanced spending plan on or before June 1. This
process includes work through the Council committees, staff reviews, and
critically important public engagement. Residents are encouraged to
participate in County Council public hearings on the proposed FY 2015 Budget.
All Council budget public hearings will be
