County Manager Mark Schwartz

Arlington County Manager Mark Schwartz speaks to County Board members on Feb. 22, 2018.

The Arlington County government is seeking community input as it embarks on the fiscal 2021 budget process.

A draft budget will not be presented to County Board members by County Manager Mark Schwartz until February, but various departments already are preparing proposed spending plans for the fiscal year that begins next July 1.
