Chairman Bulova’s Statement Following Final FY2013 Budget Committee Meeting


April 20, 2012 – When we adopt our budget, we are investing in our community’s priorities. The FY2013 budget for Fairfax County, once marked up on April 24 and adopted on May 1, will do just that. This budget will maintain the same effective tax rate as included in the budget proposal advertised by County Executive Tony Griffin in February. We will shift a half cent from the Stormwater Fee to the Real Estate Tax Rate in order to provide fiscal flexibility. With that flexibility in place, and with savings identified within the advertised version, the final budget will improve public safety, restore library hours, maintain critical human services and establish a human services reserve, and restore pay adjustments for County employees.

Sharon Bulova

Chairman, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors

Note to media: The full budget package with changes made at today’s meeting incorporated will be available prior to mark up on April 24.
