Annual Budget Process Timeline
Mecklenburg County is beginning to craft its Fiscal Year 2023-2024 budget. The first step is a public hearing where residents have the opportunity to speak on their priorities and concerns as they relate to services funded by Mecklenburg County.
Residents who register to speak will be able to offer input directly to BOCC regarding the forthcoming budget.
The County manager will outline funding recommendations for the next fiscal year for County operations and services, as well as funding recommendations to support the Board's priority areas, community organizations and partner agencies.
The purpose of the meeting is to review the County manager's recommended budget for the next fiscal year and to take action as may be deemed appropriate, including discussions and straw votes on changes to the budget. Members of the public can watch the meeting on the Government Channel or online at https://watch.mecknc.gov.
The BOCC will adopt the budget ordinance for the next fiscal year based on the County manager's recommendations and any updates stemming from the straw vote session. The ordinance authorizes all expenditures and sets the annual property tax rate.
The County operates under a balanced budget each fiscal year, from July 1 through June 30, per North Carolina statute.
