Preliminary Forecasts for FY 2014 and FY 2015 County Budgets
Nov. 28, 2012
Fairfax County Executive Edward L. Long and Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) Superintendent Jack D. Dale presented their preliminary forecasts for Fiscal Years (FY) 2014 and 2015 to the Board of Supervisors and the School Board on Nov. 27. The fiscal forecast projects significant budget shortfalls for both FY 2014 and FY 2015.
Long is scheduled to present a combined FY 2014 and 2015 budget plan as a tool to provide awareness of the multi-year impact of potential budget reductions, in addition to the FY 2014 Advertised Budget, at the Feb. 26 Board of Supervisors meeting. Dale is scheduled to release his proposed budget on Jan. 10.
Residents are encouraged to provide input for the FY 2014 and 2015 budget plan. Comments will be accepted through mid-December and provided to the county executive. Given the volume of comments expected, individual responses to comments will not be possible. Comments will be posted in December. More information about the FCPS budget process is available at www.fcps.edu. Both the county and FCPS FY 2014 budgets begin July 1, 2013.
