The Council is the final authority on spending for Montgomery County Government and County and bi-County agencies such as Montgomery County Public Schools, Montgomery College, the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, and the Montgomery County Planning Board. The County Executive submits his or her proposed capital and operating budgets to the Council and makes recommendations for independent agency budgets. The Council may add to, delete from, increase or decrease any appropriation item in the operating or capital budget. The Council reviews all spending and revenue proposals comprehensively and solicits input from the public. The goal of this process is to produce a budget that balances the needs of our residents in a fiscally responsible manner.
Watch and see some of the essential services funded in the budget for more than one million Montgomery County residents.
