Board of Supervisors Approves FY 2013 Budget Carryover
Sept. 10, 2013
Today, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing to amend the appropriation level in the current Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Budget and approved the FY 2013 Budget Carryover package. Carryover is the process by which certain unspent or unencumbered funds for commitments to pay for goods and services at the end of one fiscal year are reappropriated in the next fiscal year.
The FY 2013 Budget Carryover Package includes:
$10.2 million to fund a one-time compensation adjustment of $850 to
county merit employees to recognize the hard work of county employees
and the high quality services that they provide to the community.
The FY 2014 Adopted Budget does not include an employee salary or
market-rate adjustment increase.
$6 million to fund the first half of voting machine replacement.
Fairfax County’s current voting equipment has reached the end of its
life cycle. With the availability of funding in the FY 2013 Carryover
Package, the first portion of the new equipment will be in place for
elections in FY 2015 and FY 2016 and the remainder will be purchased
for the 2016 presidential election in FY 2017.
$2.5 million funding to accelerate the opening of the Wolf Trap Fire
Station, which will allow for the location of a tanker truck at the
station by October 2013 and the full operation of the station by July
$2.2 million to fund the opening of the Mid-County Human Services
Center. The 200,000-square-foot facility will replace the Woodburn
Center and include programs such as: 24/7 emergency services, mental
health, substance use disorder, intellectual disability, emergency,
health and wellness, and youth and administrative services.
- $1.5 million funding to match School Board funds to continue to develop new synthetic turf fields throughout the county.
