The budget office, which is part of the Department of County Administration, is responsible for developing and implementing the County’s annual operating and capital budgets under the supervision of the County Chief Administrative Officer. The office is also responsible for performance management, preparation of fiscal analysis on a variety of local and State legislation, special management research, and forecasting and monitoring County revenues and spending.



The Howard County Executive will hold two Budget Hearings for each Fiscal Year, usually in December and March. The hearings provide residents with an opportunity to make their voices heard, share concerns and provide input on priorities for the upcoming fiscal year.
