The other opportunity comes from the County Council.  Part of this year’s budget bill set up a Blue Ribbon Commission to be made up of citizens, preferably with expertise in matters of budget, finance or public policy, to look over the budget and come up with ways to solve the deficit.

“The Blue Ribbon Commission, established by Council Resolution 26-2015, will propose policies to the County Council and the County Executive over the next year to address the County’s structural deficit – the imbalance caused when normal government spending exceeds tax revenues on an annual basis.  The commission will collect, review and discuss comparative budget data and information regarding Prince George’s County’s fiscal health; policies and practices that affect Prince George’s County’s revenue structure and the strength of its tax base; the structure and fiscal dynamics of Prince George’s County’s government; and feedback from community stakeholders concerning the County’s budget and tax structure. “
