Harford County Executive David R. Craig will host a hearing on the FY 13 budget on Wednesday, January 18. The budget hearing is open to the public and will be held at Havre de Grace High School. The session will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the school auditorium.
“The purpose of the budget hearing is to allow the citizens of Harford County to make known the priorities that they would like to see funded in the budget for fiscal year 2013,” County Executive Craig stated.
County Executive Craig will be joined at the hearing by members of his Cabinet and county budget officials.
“As always, we want to hear from the taxpaying citizens of Harford County prior to developing the budget,” County Executive Craig stated. “However, the fiscal year 2013 budget will be another lean year for both the county and the state.”
