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.
First FY25 Residents' Budget Hearing
Howard County Executive Calvin Ball will hold his first Residents' Budget Hearing for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2025 budget cycle on December 11, 2023. This hearing provides residents with an opportunity to make their voices heard, share concerns and provide input on priorities for the upcoming fiscal year. The December 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.”
About two weeks prior to the hearing, residents will be able to sign-up online to speak at the hearing by clicking HERE. Speakers must sign-up individually, and one person may not sign-up for several testifiers. Additionally, individual testimony is limited to three minutes and group testimony is limited to five. Speakers who have a document or record they wish to submit with their testimony are asked to email the file to [email protected], with “BUDGET TESTIMONY” in the subject line.
From the same link, residents will also have the option to provide online budget testimony; however, residents are reminded that internet testimony is considered public information and, as such, is subject to the Maryland Public Information Act.
