Montgomery County Executive Elrich to Hold Virtual ‘Community Conversation’ to Talk About Fiscal Year 2025 Capital Improvements Budget TODAY, Monday, May 1

For Immediate Release: Monday, May 1, 2023

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich will hold his final “community conversation” to talk about long-term priorities and how he will address the Fiscal Year 2025 Capital Improvements Program (CIP) budget in a virtual event from 7-8:30 p.m. on Monday, May 1.

The May 1 conversation will be the sixth in the series. The virtual event will have five online discussions. One is the main discussion on the FY25 Capital Budget. The other four will be specific breakout discussions on education, environment and parks, transportation and recreation/libraries/general services. Breakout discussions can be accessed here.

A capital budget plan that states how much money is needed for major construction projects and for purchase and maintenance of the assets. It also determines the amount of time that will be used for the planning and design of the project.

The CIP refers to items such as land, buildings, equipment and other investments in the County. The capital budget addresses planning for long-term major projects. It differs from the County operating budget, which funds spending needs for a one-year period.

The community conversation events address how the County Government will make decisions on major projects such as the construction of public schools, building swimming pools, transportation improvements, improvements to sidewalks, improvements to local parks, building parking garages and establishing childcare centers.
