Taxpayers League Written Testimony County FY 2021 Budget - April, 2020

The FY21 budget request calls for a 3.1% supplemental property tax increase, but very little in the way of cost-control, actions to better evaluate ongoing programs, or material cutbacks re proposed even for non-performing programs, which might have been expected from the county’s “lean government” initiative.

The biggest driver of the budget is overall employee compensation, and biggest incremental driver are the latest pay increases far exceeding inflation for MCGEO. We have good cause to expect continued revenue shortfalls, economic underperformance, and poor stewardship over the county’s tax dollars that has become standard operating procedure.
