Next FY21 Operating Budget Forum in Bethesda

Next FY21 Operating Budget Forum in Bethesda

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich is holding five budget forums to seek input from residents about Fiscal Year 2021 (FY21) Operating Budget priorities.

The next forum will be Monday, Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center. This is the closest forum to Potomac.

“When I first took office in December 2018, the budget process for Fiscal Year 2019 was well underway,” said Elrich. “However, I have pledged that my administration would be looking at government and the priorities of our residents in new ways. This all starts with the budget and the best way residents can have impact on the budget is to let us know what is important to them. I invite them to come to our budget forums and let us hear their thoughts.”

FY21 Operating Budget forums are scheduled as follows:

Monday, Oct. 21 – 7 p.m. – Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center, 4805 Edgemoor Ln, Bethesda.

Wednesday, Oct. 30 – 7 p.m. – Silver Spring Civic Building, in the Buffalo Soldiers Great Hall, 1 Veterans Pl, Silver Spring.

Wednesday, Nov. 13 – 7 p.m. – Eastern Montgomery Regional Services Center, 3300 Briggs Chaney Road, Silver Spring.
