Budget Focuses on Making Life Better for People

Today I am proud to unveil my proposed budget for the upcoming year, which features a record investment in education. The budget should reflect our community’s values, so I have focused on what matters most: education, good health, economic prosperity, and equity.


The budget will help Frederick rise, recover and renew. It does so in a fiscally responsive manner. For the seventh straight year, my budget has no tax rate increases.


This budget creates a healthier, stronger, and even better Frederick County. Rise, recover and renew. It is like our shot in the arm – to lift us up and help us overcome, to ensure the delivery of important services both now and into the future, and to make life better for people.


Good news deserves good headlines, so here are the headlines from this year's budget:

The County Council will hold a virtual public hearing on the proposed budget at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20th. For details, visit www.FrederickCountyMD.gov/CountyCouncil. A complete copy of the operating and capital budgets is available at www.FrederickCountyMD.gov/budget.
