County Wants Your Input on FY14-15 Budget

Community invited to share ideas at series of meetings as officials project a shortfall of more than $100 million.

In preparation to assist the Fairfax County decision-makers with the FY 2014 - FY 2015 budget process, the county is seeking input from the community for cost-saving suggestions, reductions and revenue enhancements.

County Executive Edward Long has indicated increasing requirements for services means that the County faces a projected budget shortfall of more than $100 million in both FY 2014 and FY 2015. He has called for spending reduction options from county agencies totaling 5 percent for both years.

The County Executive will propose his FY 2014 Budget to the Board of Supervisors on Feb. 26, 2013, and has scheduled community engagement opportunities to hear feedback from residents.

Citizens are invited to attend one of three community engagement sessions:

Nov. 14 , 7-9 p.m., South County Government Center - 8350 Richmond Highway, Alexandria  22309

Nov. 16, 7-9 p.m., Government Center Rooms 9/10 - 12000 Government Center Pkwy, Fairfax 22035

Nov. 17, 9-11 a.m.,  Reston Community Center at Lake Anne - 1609 Washington Plaza, Reston  20190.

You can view a slide presentation on the budget projections prior to the meetings for background on this year's challenges.  Information and opportunities to provide your input are available on the ounty's budget webpage.
