Leggett Coming To Bethesda To Talk Budget


Published:

With his recommended budget for fiscal year 2014 coming in March, County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) will hold a town hall-style meeting in Bethesda to hear what residents want included. Leggett will host one of five budget forums at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (4805 Edgemoor Lane) at 7 p.m. on Jan. 28. He'll also make three stops in various Silver Spring locations and one in Germantown to get input on residents' budget priorities. He'll likely spend much of the time explaining how some priorities will have to wait again, in light of another tight budget year. The county must deal with a strengthened maintenance of effort law that will shift more of the cost for schools from the state to counties. County Council analysts say providing the minimum school funding amount required by the law could mean a 4.9 percent cut in other services. Flickr photo by Montgomery College
