Spending Affordability Committee

In accordance with Baltimore County Code, Sections 2-3-101 to 2-3-107, the Spending Affordability Committee (SAC) is responsible for establishing a spending guideline that seeks to limit the rate of County spending to a level that does not exceed the rate of growth of the County's economy. The SAC consists of five members, including three Council Members and two individuals who have relevant areas of specialty. The SAC is responsible for producing an annual report by February 15, which includes the spending guidelines and other findings or recommendations that the SAC considers appropriate. The County Auditor's Office provides staff services for the SAC.
