Westminster, MD, Tuesday, April 30, 2019 –Today, during Open Session, the Department of Management and Budget met with the Board of County Commissioners to release the FY2020 Proposed Budget and the Fiscal Year 2020 to 2025 Recommended Budget Plans. The commissioners discussed the difficulty in balancing this year’s budget, the emphasis on the large percentage of non-discretionary, state-dictated funding and their satisfaction in not increasing taxes.

Next, Management and Budget Director Ted Zaleski will discuss the proposed budget during several scheduled meetings in the community culminating in a Public Hearing on May 13th.
