Fiscal Year 2020 Budget Headlines

The County Executive's FY19 Recommended Operating Budget transmitted to the Council on March 15, 2019.

The County’s Operating Budget and Public Services Program (PSP) covers the costs of running our County. It pays for the transportation worker who fixes a pothole, powers the lights at your local library, provides health and human services and much more. Funds are set aside to operate each department and agency. The budget also includes Debt Service, which is the County’s annual loan payment for long term capital projects.
