Leggett to Host Capital Improvements Program Budget Forums in July

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett invites the public to provide input on the County’s next six-year capital construction budget by attending public forums that will be held in July.

Leggett and members of the Regional Citizens Advisory boards will attend the forums, which are sponsored by the Regional Services Centers and the Office of Management and Budget.

The CIP includes the costs for new or renovated major construction projects such as roads, public schools, Montgomery College facilities, water and sewer lines, parks, libraries, health and recreation facilities, and other public buildings.
