Preparing for the King County Budget

On Monday, Sept. 22, Executive Dow Constantine will present the Council with King County’s first biennial (two-year) budget—the first biennial budget for all County agencies.

With the delivery of the Executive Proposed Budget, the Council will suspend all regular committee meetings and begin our intensive two-month review of all aspects of the budget proposal. The vote on the final budget should occur before Thanksgiving.

All members of the Council serve on the Budget Committee during budget deliberations, and we hope to hear from you throughout the process. We will hold four special night meetings in Fall City, Bellevue, Kent and in Council Chambers in the County Courthouse. If you can’t make it to the meetings, you can keep track of the budget review through our Council Budget pageFacebook and Twitter (#KCBudget).

We also want you to stay involved by viewing the meetings of the three panels that will review different parts of the budget on King County TV and sending us your comments.

The King County Budget represents the single most important document through which the Council sets policy for county government and oversees the prioritization and delivery of critically important services. We look forward to hearing from you as we work on putting it together.
