Like every County in North Carolina, Mecklenburg County must adopt an annual budget by July 1 for the fiscal year that ends June 30.
The next budget cycle begins as soon as the current budget is passed, and work is well underway to develop the Manager’s Recommended Fiscal Year 2021 (FY21) Budget to be presented in May 2020.
From that point, the Board of County Commissioners hold a series of meetings and a public hearing and then decide on the County’s spending plan and property tax rate to support it.
Between now and then, we want to hear what you think the County’s priorities should be, and this year there are more opportunities than ever to provide your input.
This web page will be “budget central” for all information and events related to the FY21 budget process.
FY2021 Resident Budget Priority Survey is a dynamic feedback tool where County residents are asked to provide their budget priorities by ranking services by level of importance to the County’s future. Use this tool to learn about how Mecklenburg County manages and allocates its $1.9 Billion Dollar operating budget and weigh- in on Mecklenburg County’s FY 2021 budget priorities. The survey should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete. Residents may also submit comments and sign-up to receive updates.
Meck Budget Simulator is a tool designed to allow County residents to show us how they would balance the budget. Visit this link to learn specific details about Mecklenburg County revenue sources and expense categories and create a balanced budget based on what is important to you. Submit your balanced budget for County leaders to view. Residents may also submit individual comments and share the tool online.
