Baltimore County Council Meets to Pass Budget — and Possibly Select a County Executive

The Baltimore County Council will meet Thursday to adopt a $3.3 billion budget — and possibly appoint a new county executive.

The 10 a.m. meeting initially was scheduled to pass a series of spending bills that will lay out the government’s budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1, as well as to consider other policy issues, such as whether county employee health plans should cover 12 months of birth control.
