Four FY2010 Budget Community Dialogue Sessions to Be Held Sept. 20
Sept. 15, 2008
- Community dialogue sessions will be held at four libraries.
- 16 other sessions scheduled through November.
- Comments also welcome by phone or online.
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 hot line and created an online budget feedback form.
The first four of the community dialogue sessions will be held Saturday, Sept. 20, from 9:30 a.m.-noon at:
- Chantilly Regional Library – 4000 Stringfellow Road, Chantilly.
- Reston Regional Library – 11925 Bowman Towne Drive, Reston.
- Sherwood Regional Library – 2501 Sherwood Hall Lane, Alexandria.
- George Mason Regional Library – 7001 Little River Turnpike, Annandale
The inputgathered 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 call the budget hot line at 703-324-9400, submit comments online or attend one of the community dialogue sessions (registration required online or by calling 703-324-2391, TTY 711). For more information, visit the budget Web page or call 703-324-3187, TTY 711.
