On September 24, 2018, the King County Executive transmitted to the King County Council the proposed King County 2019-2020 Biennial Budget. The Council will review the proposed budget, hold hearings and briefings, and gather feedback from the public throughout the fall.

The majority of the budget review work will take place in the Budget & Fiscal Management Committee (all members sit on this Committee during the budget review). The schedule will continue to be updated under the meeting review tab. The Council will likely adopt the final budget prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Over the next several weeks we will continue to post more information about the Council’s review of the proposal. Also, please join our open town hall to share your opinions and priorities with us about the proposed budget.

We want to hear from you about your priorities for the budget. Please join our open town hall below to share your thoughts on the proposed budget.
