City Announces 2013 Budget Forum

Members of the public are invited to provide input on funding priorities for Gaithersburg's coming fiscal year in an informal, town hall setting.

Have an opinion on how Gaithersburg is spending its money? The city hopes to hear why.

Gaithersburg's annual Budget Public Forum — slated for Monday, Feb. 11 at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall — was announced Wednesday morning.

During the informal, town hall-style meeting, staff will present the financial state of the city, then elected officials will entertain input from the community on funding priorities for the coming fiscal year, which begins on July 1, 2013, the city announced.

The staff presentation will include a state of the city’s finances, including how the city ended the previous fiscal year, revenue and expenditure projections for FY14, and potential implications of “fiscal cliff” negotiations on city finances.

Members of the public wishing to speak do not have to register in advance and will be limited to a 3 minute opportunity to express their thoughts. Comment on the budget can also be provided via e-mail to cityhall@gaithersburgmd.gov

The FY14 budget is scheduled for public hearing in late April, with adoption anticipated in early June.

The FY13 city of Gaithersburg budget and strategic plan are available on the city’s website
