County Executive Jan Gardner today shared highlights of major construction projects included in the preliminary capital budget, reviewed operating budget requests, and announced plans to hold a virtual public hearing on the upcoming fiscal year. The budget is based on no property or income tax rate increases. Highlights of the six-year Capital Improvement Program include moving up construction of a new Brunswick Elementary School, a library in Middletown, and the expansion and renovation of Animal Control. Executive Gardner encouraged the community to share their priorities via email, phone or social media.
“Preparing and presenting the county budget is the most important responsibility I have as County Executive and the most significant task we do together as a community,” said Executive Gardner. “During this public health crisis, a virtual public hearing is the safest way for residents to share their priorities.”
