County Seeks Budget Ideas and Comments on New, Easy-to-Use Link on Homepage

A new link on the Montgomery County homepage makes it even easier for residents to provide comments and ideas on government restructuring, cost savings and other thoughts about closing the County’s projected $300 million budget gap for the coming fiscal year (FY).   The idea for the new link came from Montgomery County Councilmember George Leventhal.

Resident feedback will be used by both the Montgomery County Council, during its budget deliberations, and Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett, as he prepares his recommended operating budget, which will be presented to the County Council on March 15. 

The County Executive held five budget forums in January throughout the County and the County Council is holding a series of Town Hall meetings to hear directly from residents about their suggestions. 

The County Council approves the FY 2012 budget in May.  The new fiscal year begins July 1.  The budget form is available on the County’s website
