Leggett to Host Final FY16 Operating Budget Public Forum; Residents’ Input Crucial in Determining Priorities

UPDATE - Due to inclement weather, the Budget Forum is rescheduled to February 2.

Leggett to Host Final FY16 Operating Budget Public Forum; Residents’ Input Crucial in Determining Priorities


About 150 attended last week's County budget forum with County Executive Leggett hosted by the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board.  120 attended the Mid-County Advisory Board forum last night. 

The County Operating Budget is the document that maps out how tax dollars are spent.  The forums are one opportunity for the community to learn about the fiscal climate, ask questions, and let your priorities be known.  Your input is critical.  


Next Monday's forum with County Executive Leggett is hosted by the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board.  The forum begins at 7pm at the BCC Regional Services Center, 4805 Edgemoor Lane in Bethesda.  There is plentiful public parking under the Regional Services Center which is located immediately adjacent to the Bethesda Metro station.
