Board of Commissioners Adopts FY2021 Budget

Westminster, Tuesday, May 26, 2020 – Today, the Carroll County Board of Commissioners (BOC) voted unanimously to adopt the FY2021 budget. In a separate vote, the BOC also voted unanimously to approve the property tax rate, with no increase. Lastly, the commissioners voted to approve increases in the county solid waste fees.

The commissioners all made comments and attested to the cooperation from their colleagues and the difficulty and financial uncertainties surrounding the budget process this year.  The commissioners stressed that the budget remains a work in progress, and they intend to revisit the document at a future date in the fall, after the county determines effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and learns of any state and federal funding assistance.

Meetings are available for viewing on the county meeting portal and the county YouTube channel. In addition, all meetings will be replayed on Comcast Channel 24.
