Council Receives County Executive’s FY 2024 Proposed Spending Plan; Begins Budget Review Process


The Prince George’s County Council today received County Executive Angela Alsobrooks’ Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2024, which begins on July 1, 2023.  


Council Chair Tom Dernoga (District 1) commented on the proposed spending plan, “We are pleased with the County Executive’s focus on investing in education and public safety, and to see strong investments in the Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement and in storm water management as well.   We  will spend the next two months digging in and ensuring that Council priorities are considered.”


Over the next three months, the Council will engage in a careful and deliberative Budget Review Process, which will be guided by the core tenets  of the People’s Agenda, and conducted through the Council’s standing committees, staff reviews and important public engagement. 

The People’s Council is committed to an open, inclusive and participatory budget process, and looks forward to working collaboratively with County Executive Alsobrooks and her budget team, County residents and all stakeholders to produce a final spending plan that reflects its commitment to the People’s Agenda priorities. 


Pursuant to the County Charter, the County Council, in its role as the fiscal steward over taxpayer dollars, must adopt a new and balanced spending plan for Prince George’s County on or before June 1. 


Budget meeting schedules are subject to change. All Council meetings, including budget sessions, are live streamed and available via the Council’s website for on-demand viewing.
