Anne Arundel County unveiled a $1.04 billion operating budget proposal on Wednesday for next fiscal year, calling for 75 new positions throughout the school system and $5.8 million to open a new contract school. Interim Superintendent Mamie Perkins outlined a budget recommendation that's $35.5 million — or 3.5 percent — above the current approved budget. That request may put Perkins at odds with the Anne Arundel County government, which school officials say will fund nearly 60 percent of the budget.

Smith's proposed budget for next fiscal year, eliminating money for several of his academic initiatives while making a priority of teacher pay raises and benefits.

The average citizen could be forgiven for failing to understand the way taxpayer money gets spent at the state and county level. It's as complex as a spider web, and about as easy to get tangled in. As of this week, Harford County Executive David R. Craig was getting ready to put together a spending plan for the year that begins July 1 (not Jan. 1, as the year does for most of us). His initial citizens input meeting was supposed to have been Monday, but that was delayed because of the weather.

Even with the conservative budget proposal he released five weeks ago, interim Schools Superintendent Charles I. Ecker came up nearly $1.8 million short. The revised 2003 operating budget recommendation he is expected to present tonight to the school board would dig the Carroll County system further in the hole - by $6.7 million. "I think it's reasonable in comparison with other counties," Ecker said of his $211 million budget request, which must win approval of the school board and county commissioners before being funded by county tax dollars.

Though government revenues are sliding, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman was urged to spend money for everything from education to skateboard parks in his next budget by members of a standing-room-only crowd at his annual hearing. "The fact is, we are in the worst economic crisis that most of us have lived through. We're going to have some tough times," Ulman told the crowd Thursday night. County revenues could drop, depending on state aid and income tax returns, and Ulman said he has asked department heads to prepare two budgets for next fiscal year - one flat and one with a 5 percent reduction.
