Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro issued the following statement today after County Executive Isiah Leggett submitted his recommended Fiscal Year 2014 operating budget to the Council:

The County Executive’s Fiscal year 2014 Recommended Operating Budget provides a good starting point for the Council’s decision-making process. We appreciate the hard work by the Executive and his staff that has gone into developing it.

Over the past several years we have made many difficult decisions to address the severe fiscal challenges of the Great Recession. Now, as the economy continues to recover slowly, we must carefully balance a wide array of County needs. That is what our Council Committees and the full Council will undertake over the next two months.

The participation of County residents will be a key component of this process. The Council’s public hearings on the operating budget are scheduled for April 9-11; residents should call (240) 777-7803 to sign up to speak. Input can be submitted via email at county.council@montgomerycountymd.gov; via regular mail to: County Council, 100 Maryland Avenue, Rockville, MD 20850; or by calling our Council’s budget hotline at 240-777-7802. Information on the budget can be found at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/council and by clicking “budget update.”

We look forward to receiving the comments and suggestions of our residents as we move through the budget process.
