ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Executive Calvin Ball will hold his first Residents’ Budget Hearing for the Fiscal Year 2024 (FY24) budget cycle on Wednesday, December 21st at 6:00 p.m. This year’s budget hearing will be held virtually and can be watched live from the County Council’s streaming website. The hearing will be listed under “Upcoming Events.”

The budget is a reflection of our community’s shared priorities. This hearing provides a wonderful opportunity for our residents to offer input and make their voices heard as we work to develop the County’s FY24 budget. While we have faced many challenges with the ongoing pandemic and rising risks of recession, I’m confident Howard County will remain resilient and emerge stronger than ever, when we work together as a community.
