Board of Supervisors Marks Up FY 2014 Budget
April 23, 2013
Today, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors marked up the proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2014, which begins on July 1, 2013. The marked-up budget includes a real estate tax rate of $1.085 per $100 of assessed value, which is a 1-cent increase from the $1.075 rate in FY 2013, but less than the 2-cent increase proposed by the county executive. The tax rate increase equals $20.6 million in additional revenue.
Formal adoption of the FY 2014 Budget is scheduled for April 30.
The FY 2014 plan marked up by the board provides for a balanced budget based on a General Fund Revenue increase of 2.47 percent over the FY 2013 Adopted Budget Plan. General Fund Disbursements are projected to increase 1.37 percent over the FY 2013 Adopted Budget Plan.
The county transfer to support FCPS operations reflects an increase of 2 percent over FY 2013.
The FY 2014 Budget does not include compensation increases for Fairfax County government employees, with the exception of longevity increases for public safety employees necessary to maintain their salary scales.
In addition, the total number of county staff positions will be reduced by 41, which includes the elimination of 83 positions, offset by 42 new positions.
