In its review of the county's biennial budget, the King County Council values the input of county residents. Traditionally, public hearings have been held in different regions of the county for the public to attend, learn about the county budget and the challenges being faced at the time, and provide feedback. Because of the pandemic, these meetings have moved online. The public is invited to provide oral comments at one of the meetings below or by email as described further down.

To participate in these meetings except the November 17 meeting, please visit the Council's Budget and Fiscal Management Committee web page for the information needed to join the online meeting: Information on joining the meeting on November 17 will be provided later.
