Carroll commissioners to hear recommended budget proposal Tuesday at 1 p.m.

The Carroll County Board of Commissioners is scheduled to hear a presentation on the recommended fiscal year 2020 budget Tuesday afternoon.

An overview presentation posted online by the county government from earlier in March doesn’t include a total FY20 budget proposal. The FY19 budget was set at about $411.3 million.

Ted Zaleski, director of the county’s management and budget office said the process hasn’t “gotten there yet,” when it comes to putting a definite figure on the budget proposal.

The county’s total projected income for FY19 is estimated to reach $380 million, with a projection of $390.5 million in total revenue for FY20.

Carroll County plans to formalize its work in expanding solar energy by adding provisions to its master plan, possibly making the county eligible for more funding assistance in its renewable energy projects.

According to the presentation dated March 7, Zaleski is focusing on a few items when it comes to shaping the budget proposal. The “really big things” on his mind include an $8.9 million request from Carroll County Public Schools, $565,000 for increased salaries at Carroll Community College and the county’s revenue picture.

Other budget concerns include a long-term plan for solid waste, fundraising for the Westminster branch of the Carroll County Public Library and 911 coverage.

The proposed budget is scheduled to be released April 30, with a public hearing scheduled for May 13.

Tuesday’s presentation to the commissioners is scheduled for 1 p.m. in room 311 of the Carroll County Office Building.
