Blue Ribbon Commission

The Blue Ribbon Commission on Addressing Prince George’s County’s Structural Deficit, established by Council Resolution 26-2015 (PDF) as a part of the approved FY 2016 County Budget, convened for the first time on Monday, September 14, 2015, 10:00 a.m. in the County Administration Building, 14741 Governor Oden Bowie Drive in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

The Blue Ribbon Commission is charged with recommending policies to the County Council and County Executive over the next year that will address the County’s structural deficit – the imbalance caused when normal government spending exceeds tax revenues on an annual basis. The commission will collect, review and discuss comparative budget data and information regarding Prince George’s County’s fiscal health; policies and practices that affect Prince George’s County’s revenue structure and the strength of its tax base; the structure and fiscal dynamics of the Prince George’s County Government; and feedback from community stakeholders concerning the County’s budget and tax structure.​
