Happening tomorrow – COUNTY COUNCIL: Budget Adoption | Legislative Session | Wednesday, May 29, 2019 | Banneker Room | George Howard Building, 3430 Court House Drive, Ellicott City, MD | 10 a.m

The agenda is pretty significant…but there are 2 items I will be watching closely:

Council Bill 24-2019 – AN ACT adopting the current expense budget and the capital budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2019 and ending June 30, 2020, to be known as the Annual Budget and Appropriation Ordinance of Howard County, Fiscal Year 2020.

Note – CB24 has 19 amendments.


Council Resolution 68-2019 – A RESOLUTION setting forth the Fiscal Year 2020 Operating Budget for the Howard County Board of Education.

Note – CB68 has 3 amendments. This is the bill that could add $8 million to the HCPSS budget – $7.7 being one time funding. If it passes…it will be interesting to see what the County Executive does with this legislation.

Stay tuned…I will have a follow up to how members voted later tomorrow or Thursday morning.
