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 2022 (FY22) Budget to be presented in May 2021.
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.
The Board of County Commissioners determined the below priorities during their Annual Budget Retreat in January 2021. These priorities will guide decision making and resource allocation for the FY2022 budget.
FY2022 Resident Budget Priority Survey was a dynamic feedback tool where County residents were asked to provide their budget priorities by ranking services by level of importance to the County’s future. The results were shared with the Board of County Commissioners at the Annual Budget Retreat and are published in an Interactive Dashboard that can be used to filter and view survey results by district, age, race/ethnicity, income, and more.
Meck FY2021 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.Property Tax Estimator
