This page on the Westchester County website walks through the budget creation process. Public Hearings are part of the formal Budget Review process. For your reference, we've copied these next steps from the County website.

  • The board schedules public hearings. These usually include two hearings before the deadline for additions, as well as a final formal Charter-mandated hearing in the Legislative Chambers.

  • The legislature continues to review the proposed budget in committee. In advance of the scheduled vote, the Committee on Budget Appropriations issues a report with its recommended deletions (if any) to the Board of Legislators.

  • The Board of Legislators, in a public session, debates the budget. There are often votes on individual changes included in the budget committee's report as well as other changes suggested from the floor by legislators. At this point, nothing new may be added; there may only be deletions.

The deadline for the budget is December 27.
