Leggett To Talk Budget Tonight In Bethesda


(UPDATED: 12:45 p.m.) County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) is coming to Bethesda tonight to discuss the upcoming budget, and it's expected he'll emphasize the challenges involved with another tight budget cycle. But the forum might also serve as a question-and-answer type session on a range of Bethesda issues. At a budget forum earlier this month in Silver Spring, Leggett answered questions about noise from the ICC highway. Before tonight's forum starts at 7 p.m., the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board will meet. A recent dust-up over the Bethesda Metro South Entrance project could come up. Leggett recommended delaying funding for the project because the county views it as tied to the uncertain Purple Line project. But transportation advocates say the South Entrance should be built regardless. There's also the long-term disruptions from the development of Lot 31 in Bethesda Row and the potential closure of the Bethesda Metro bus bays. The forum will take place at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (4805 Edgemoor Lane). Not long after Leggett's appearance tonight, County Councilman Roger Berliner (D-Bethesda-Potomac) will hold a similar gathering at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center. A Council spokesman announced today that Berliner invites residents to join him at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday for another part of his series of "Conversations With Roger Berliner."
