The meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, March 24, at Old Mill High School; Wednesday, March 25, at Crofton Elementary School; and Thursday, March 26, at Annapolis High School. All of the meetings are scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.

People who are unable to attend the hearings can submit written testimony to the county executive's office until April 1.

The spending proposal will be submitted to the County Council on May 1. DuringMay, public hearings will be conducted by the council on the proposed budget.

The council must approve a budget by June 1.

County departments and agencies have been asked to submit budgets not exceeding the levels of the revised fiscal 1992 spending plan, approved by the council last December. The current budget was reduced from $616 million to $598 million after cuts in state aid and county revenue.

Neall has stipulated that there will be no increases in several budget categories, including personnel, in fiscal 1993. He has also asked each department head to suggest county programs or services that might be assumed by the private sector and to submit a restructuring plandesigned to increase efficiency.
