Budget Roundtables

We’re looking for feedback earlier this year than ever before as we plan for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 budget. Join your neighbors for community roundtable discussions about budget priorities and challenges. Your suggestions and comments will help the County Manager shape his FY19 budget proposal, which will go to the Board in February 2018.

During the seven roundtables, up to 25 participants will be joined by members of the County’s executive leadership team to learn about the FY 2019 budget process and budget challenges facing Arlington County. Participants also will share their perspectives about budget priorities through a series of discussion questions.

Due to limited space, we ask that participants register for only one roundtable, to allow everyone interested the opportunity to participate.
