FY 2022 Budget

On April 27, the Board of Supervisor approved the markup of the proposed FY 2022 Budget, which is scheduled for a final vote Tuesday, May 4. Difficult decisions were made and while the board did not go along with my recommendation for another dedicated half penny for affordable housing, getting the equivalent of that amount from federal recovery funding is a good start. More details are below and as always, your comments and questions are welcome. Contact my office at huntermill@fairfaxcounty.gov.

Below is a quick summary of what was approved and you can watch the meeting here.

  • 1% pay increase for county employees.
  • $15 million more for the Fairfax County Public Schools Operating Fund transfer to support compensation increases for FCPS employees.
  • Funding to provide salary supplements for state employees, including Office of the Public Defender support staff and probation and parole officers.
  • The budget maintains the one-cent tax rate reduction proposed in the original FY 2022 Advertised Budget Plan, down from $1.15 in FY 2021 to $1.14 in FY 2022.

Once adopted, the FY 2022 Budget becomes effective July 1, 2021. Learn more about the budget.

Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn is hosting a panel discussion and town hall on Tuesday, April 20 at 7 p.m. to provide information on the countywide inventory and report on Confederate street names, monuments and public places and to discuss possible next steps.

Watch a live stream of the meeting on YouTube Live. “I am looking forward to a thoughtful discussion that ensures that we move forward in a way that makes all residents in every community in our county feel welcome and respected,” said Supervisor Alcorn. “Our area has both a rich and complicated history before, during, and after the Civil War, and our views of that history are often shaped by our personal histories and identities. It is important for Hunter Mill residents to have opportunities to hear from and learn from each other as Fairfax County explores changing how we identify Confederate-named public streets and other places.” Background: In December 2020, the Fairfax County History Commission completed a report in response to a June 23, 2020 directive from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors initiated by Supervisor Alcorn and Providence District Supervisor Dalia Palchik, which included the legal and financial implications of possible name changes, and input from other county entities. The scope of the report was refined after History Commission representatives met with Supervisors Alcorn and Palchik to clarify what should be included in the inventory. The resulting report excludes federal property, public schools, places of worship, and cemeteries.  Out of the approximately 26,500 assets the History Commission examined, approximately 157 assets, including parks, within the County, were confirmed as having Confederate associated names.  

March 9 Virtual Meeting of Task Force

March 11, 2021
The Reston Comprehensive Plan Study Task Force is scheduled to wrap up its review process this summer following a yearlong effort and more than two dozen meetings. Its recommendations will then be shared for feedback at town hall meetings and dialogues with stakeholders such as homeowner associations, community organizations and business groups. Since May 2020, the Reston Comprehensive Plan Study Task Force members have been working diligently, with the support of the county’s Department of Planning and Development, to review and propose updates to key elements of the Comprehensive Plan including the planned balance of ongoing redevelopment, infrastructure and the environment across all of Reston. Topic areas under review include: Planning Principles Population Transportation Parks & Open Space Village Center Density Public Art Equity Energy/Environment Public Health Affordable Housing The review process of the Reston Comprehensive Plan was initiated in January 2020 by Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn and approved by the Board of Supervisors for additional study and community input. “The review process has been somewhat slowed by the pandemic, but I am very excited by the work and the collaboration by the task force, as well as county agencies including the Department of Planning and Development and Department of Transportation, among others. We still have several months of work ahead, but I believe the outcome will reaffirm Restonians’ decision to live in a planned, equity-focused community,” noted Supervisor Alcorn.
