How can I provide feedback on the budget?

Community members can provide feedback on the operating budget in multiple ways:

  • Testify in person or virtually at an upcoming Board of Education public hearing. Registration opens three weeks prior to each public hearing. If needed the Board will add additional dates.
  • Submit written feedback to the Board at Please note that submissions will be published as written testimony on BoardDocs.
  • Testify or submit written testimony during the County Executive’s Residents’ budget hearing, usually held in March.
  • Testify during a Howard County Council public hearing in April.
