TOWSON, MD—County Executive Johnny Olszewski on Friday announced his second annual series of town hall meetings to hear from constituents about their ideas and priorities.

The seven meetings, one in each council district, will provide a forum for public discussion focused on future budget priorities and ensure that community members have the opportunity to provide input into the budget planning process.

“In order to best serve the people of Baltimore County, we need to hear from them directly,” said Olszewski. “We remain committed to working collaboratively with all of our stakeholders in every community to build a better Baltimore County together.”

From 2016 to 2017, a total of two people testified on Baltimore County’s budget. In 2018, during his first year in office, Olszewski held the inaugural series of budget town hall meetings. Over 2,000 residents attended, with hundreds sharing priorities for the county.

This year, the Olszewski Administration will offer additional on-site resources from Baltimore County agencies to provide more immediate access to services and further connect residents with available resources.

Town Halls will be streamed live on the Baltimore County Government Facebook page.

In the event of inclement weather that cancels evening activities at Baltimore County Public Schools or CCBC, the meeting will be postponed and rescheduled.

Translation services, sign language interpreters and other accommodations can be arranged upon request.
