Responding to Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett’s recommended Fiscal Year 2013 operating budget that was sent to the County Council on March 15, Council President Roger Berliner said:
“The County Executive has submitted his Fiscal Year 2013 Recommended Operating Budget at a time when Montgomery County is slowly emerging from the deep hole brought about by the Great Recession. As we look ahead to this next fiscal year, our Council must bear in mind the steps we have taken to put ourselves on a sustainable path into the future as we make strategic restorations to County services that have sustained deep, deep cuts.
“I commend the County Executive and his staff for submitting a sound budget. It is an excellent framework for the Council as we enter budget deliberations and reflects our shared commitment to being careful stewards of our County’s resources. We will approach this year’s budget with cautious optimism and prudent judgment as we balance the wide array of County needs before us.”
