Fairfax County Podcasts 

Welcome to the podcast of meeting highlights for the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors meeting on April 23, 2013.

  • The Board 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 one 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 revenue, primarily to fund increases to Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) and public safety.  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 from the FY 2013 Adopted Budget Plan. General Fund Disbursements are projected to increase 1.37 percent from the FY 2013 Adopted Budget Plan.  The county transfer to support FCPS operations reflects an increase of 2 percent over the FY 2013 level. 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. 


  • The Board also approved the County’s and Schools’ FY 2013 third quarter review, and the Fairfax County Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for FY 2014-18 (with future fiscal years to 2023).
