The 3 Stages of Budget Approval

The Board of Education reviews the budget as recommended by the Superintendent. The Board may make changes at this time.

The County Executive reviews the budget as recommended by the Board of Education. Again, the County Executive may make changes during this stage.

The County Executive’s proposed budget is reviewed by the County Council, who has the final authority to make changes. The County Council’s approved final budget is then provided to the Board of Education. 

We strongly encourage county 
residents to participate in 
each of these stages!

 The public is invited to voice their comments about the proposed budget directly to the Board of Education at two public hearings. County residents are also invited to attend the Board of Education workshops.

No public testimony is taken at the workshops. Rather, they provide an opportunity to hear staff and Board members discuss issues affecting the budget. 

There are no public discussions with the County Executive at the time, however, county residents are encouraged to communicate their views to the County Executive via phone, letter or email during this time.

The County Council will schedule three public hearings in mid-May to hear residents’ comments on the proposed budget.
