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 held in the Council Hearing Room, First Floor, County Administration Building, 14741 Gov. Oden Bowie Drive, in Upper Marlboro.   To testify, contact the Clerk of the Council at 301.952.3600;  TDD 301.925.5167.
