More Information 

Fairfax County residents will have an opportunity to provide their input on the Fiscal Year 2010 Budget (which runs from July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010) to county leaders in a variety of ways this year. The county, in conjunction with Fairfax County Public Schools, has scheduled 20 community dialogue sessions, established a budget hotline and created an online budget feedback form.

Fairfax County is projecting a budget deficit of more than $400 million for FY 2010, which must be addressed through a combination of spending reductions and other strategies. A budget will be developed with an appropriate level of services that are both sustainable and acceptable to the community.

The input gathered from the public will be used as a key factor to help guide the development of criteria for making budget decisions, providing the public with greater opportunity to help shape the budget before County Executive Anthony H. Griffin presents his proposed budget to the Board of Supervisors in February. Residents will still have an opportunity to provide feedback in March and April to the board at the budget hearings as in previous years.

Residents are encouraged to:
