Community Engagement Meetings Scheduled Nov. 14, 16, 17 on Upcoming Multi-Year Budget Plan

Nov. 8, 2012

Residents have the opportunity to provide input on funding priorities and possible reductions for the multi-year budget plan for Fiscal Year 2014 (effective July 1, 2013) and Fiscal Year 2015 (Effective July 1, 2014) at three community engagement sessions scheduled for next week, as well as through an online survey available through the end of the month.  

“The combination of flat revenue growth due to the slow economic recovery and increasing demand and requirements for services means that the county faces a projected budget shortfall of more than $100 million in both FY 2014 and 2015,” explains County Executive Ed Long. ”We want your ideas on how we can continue to move forward in a way that protects the quality of life we value in our community.”

The Community Engagement Sessions are hosted by the Department of Management and Budget; no registration is needed:

The Online Survey option will be open through Friday, Nov. 30. Helpful information to read before answering the three survey questions can be found in this presentation (PDF) and at

The Department of Management and Budget will compile the input, which will be posted online by mid-December and provided to the Board of Supervisors and the county executive. 

Upcoming opportunities for input in the coming months include “Ask Fairfax” online chats with the county executive and public hearings scheduled for April 9-11, 2013. Long is scheduled to release his multi-year budget at the Feb. 26, 2013 Board of Supervisors meeting.
