Anne Arundel County Council raises ceiling on rainy day fund, exempts disabled veterans from extra property taxes

June 8, 2022

As part of County Executive Steuart Pittman’s budget proposal for fiscal 2023, he announced in April he’d request the county council raise the rainy-day cap to 7% of the estimated General Fund, which will result in savings of about $133 million, he said. Six council members voted in favor of the increase. Allison Pickard, a Glen Burnie Democrat, was absent. Nathan Volke, a Pasadena Republican, said he was pleased to see the cap on an upward trajectory following a hike to 6% last year but said he’d like to see it increase even higher to 10%.
