For Immediate Release: Thursday, May 18, 2017

"I want to congratulate Council President Roger Berliner, the entire County Council, and Council staff on their constructive work on the County's Operating Budget for the fiscal year that begins this July 1.


"This approved budget reflects our common priorities and values for the County for the upcoming years. It is prudent and provides a blueprint that should help us to weather some of the potential challenges posed by possible federal budget cutbacks as well as by slower revenue growth and needed ongoing expenditures.  Together, we have balanced our County’s needs and top priorities with the resources available."
