After hearing the proposal Wednesday, board members questioned how many of the more than three dozen prioritized projects on the proposal would end up being shelved for another year. The capital budget sets funding priorities for the school system's construction projects.

Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold introduced to the County Council on Monday morning his proposed $1.18 billion operating budget for the next fiscal year, calling for up to 12 furlough days for most of the county's workforce in an attempt to make up for plummeting revenues. Trying to close a $95 million shortfall without layoffs, Leopold's proposal calls for the closure of county offices for five days. Most county employees would take an additional seven days of unpaid leave, Leopold said, amounting to a 4.5 percent pay decrease.

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education expressed support for schools Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell's proposed spending and construction budgets, calling them responsible at a time of economic tumult. Maxwell introduced the $981 million operating budget, which contains no new funding for educational programming or new staffing and will cause an increase in class sizes, and the $176 million capital budget at Wednesday night's board meeting. Still, the budgets are likely to be downsized by County Executive John R. Leopold and the County Council, who have final say on school budgets.

The Howard County Board of Education approved capital and operating budgets yesterday morning totaling $727.45 million. The $656.69 million operating budget includes money that will provide each teacher with a 1.2 percent cost-of-living increase, which will take effect in the coming school year. "Our goal was to protect the people who work for us," said Superintendent Sydney L. Cousin. "We wanted to make sure that we found ways to reward our staff for the hard work they do every day." The operating budget passed 6-1. Member Allen Dyer voted against it because he opposes the school system's practice of providing busing to students attending parochial school.

Like most county public schools that were built in the 1960s and are in need of a face-lift, Northeast High School in Pasadena needs a new gymnasium, more classrooms and a larger cafeteria. But whether county officials can fully fund the renovation project, which would cost $32 million in the next fiscal year, is uncertain. Portions of the project could be put on the back burner as the school system struggles to put a dent in maintenance and construction backlogs that have grown over the years because of lack of funding.

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman's first capital budget gives county schools every penny they requested, but it also forecasts higher fire taxes for property owners and excise taxes for developers to help fund the record $353.7 million proposal. Ulman said his plan reflects his priorities of education, public safety and the environment, but he warned that tough decisions on "future revenue sources" are looming. "Over the coming years, our capital budget pressures will intensify drastically," Ulman said in a letter to the County Council.

Howard County Executive James N. Robey would increase spending on construction projects by 50 percent in the fiscal year beginning in July but would delay an eagerly anticipated new high school and one new elementary school in a $148.5 million capital budget proposed yesterday. With no surplus cash and only $4.4 million in state school construction money promised for next year, Robey said he cannot keep up with the county's needs without help, and he is not willing to borrow $100 million to fill the gap. Three years ago, cash from surplus and state funding amounted to nearly $50 million.

The Annapolis city council approved a $55.6 million operating budget last night - the first of Mayor Ellen O. Moyer's administration - with few changes. Only minor amendments to the budget were offered, proposed by the council's finance committee with Moyer's support. Three aldermen told the council they had different priorities but said they believed amendment attempts were "futile." Alderman Sheila M. Tolliver, who helped build a coalition that significantly amended budgets of the past three years at the last minute, chastised fellow members for not joining her criticism of the spending plan.
