Community Dialogues on FY 2011 County Budget Begin Sept. 29
Sept. 15, 2009
Fairfax County residents will have an opportunity to provide their input on the Fiscal Year 2011 Budget (which runs from July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011) to county leaders in a variety of ways this year. The county, in conjunction with Fairfax County Public Schools,has scheduled 12 community dialogue sessions and established a budget hotline and an online budget feedback form.
The community dialogue sessions will be held between Sept. 29 and Nov. 14. The complete schedule can be found online. Registration is required and can be completed online or by calling 703-324-2391, TTY 711.
The first two meetings are:
- Tuesday, Sept. 29, 7-9 p.m., McLean Community Center.
- Wednesday, Sept. 30, 7-9 p.m., West Springfield High School.
Meetings also will be held Wednesday, Oct. 14; Saturday, Oct. 24; Thursday, Oct. 29, and Saturday, Nov. 14.
Residents also are encouraged to call the budget hotline at 703-324-9400 or submit comments online if they are not able to attend one of the community dialogue sessions.
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 2010. Residents will still have an opportunity to provide feedback in March and April to the board at the budget hearings as in previous years.
