STATEMENT - COUNCIL CHAIR TODD TURNER ON PROPOSED FISCAL YEAR 2021 BUDGET



Council Receives County Executive’s Proposed FY 2021 Spending Plan; Budget Review Process Begins 

The Prince George’s County Council today received the Proposed FY 2021 Operating and Capital Budgets from County Executive Angela D. Alsobrooks. We thank the County Executive and her budget team for their assembly of the proposed spending plan.

This Council is committed to an open, inclusive and participatory budget process. We are supportive of the priorities detailed in the Executive’s budget proposal, and we look forward to our continued partnership with County Executive Alsobrooks, County residents and all stakeholders to produce a final FY 2021 spending plan.

Pursuant to the County Charter, the County Council, in its role as the County’s fiscal authority, must adopt a new and balanced spending plan for Prince George’s County on or before June 1. The new Fiscal Year begins July 1, 2020. Over the next few months, through its standing committees, staff reviews and important public engagement, the Council will conduct its Budget Review and Adoption Process.

The County Council will hold public hearings, staff work sessions and committee meetings to accommodate public input. Budget meeting schedules are subject to change and may be impacted by the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) health situation. For updated information on the Council budget process, committee work sessions and public hearings, visit the Council’s FY 21 Budget Portal.
