To be determined.
Monthly GFCA Executive Board Meeting
The agenda will be distributed to Board Members in advance of the meeting.
GFCA, in coordination with Supervisor Foust's office, is sponsoring a public meeting on the proposed FY2021 Budget for Fairfax County.
The following is an excerpt from the Dranesville Dispatch, January 2020:
FY 2021 Budget - Looking Ahead
Adopting a budget that adequately funds essential services and is sensitive to the burden on taxpayers is never easy. The County Executive will release his Advertised Budget to Board members, County staff, and the public on February 25, 2020. The Board will authorize the proposed tax rate on March 10, 2020, hold public hearings on the advertised budget from April 14 through 16, 2020, and will adopt the tax rate and FY 2021 budget on May 5, 2020.
Last November, the Board of Supervisors and School Board received a fiscal forecast briefing. At that time, residential property values were projected to increase 2.08 percent, while commercial property values were projected to increase 1.84 percent. A 1.9 percent revenue increase ($85.7 million) was projected. The budget will consider many County and school needs that will be competing for funding, such as: teacher salaries; staffing the new Scotts Run Fire Station and South County Police Station; the police body-worn camera program; Diversion First and the Opioid Task Force; as well as County employee compensation and Metro funding. Needs are expected to exceed available revenue. Once again, the Board will work closely with County residents to ensure that funding decisions reflect the community's priorities.
