FY 2020 Fairfax County and School Budgets

Federation members,

Board-approved draft of the FY2020 Budget Resolution

    Every year the Federation reviews and opinionates on the Fairfax County Fiscal Year 2020 Advertised Budget. This big document lays out where Fairfax money comes from and how it is proposed to be spent next year.

    For our review, Federation committees do the research and writing and the Budget Committee consolidates it all into a coherent Resolution. Your Board members reviewed and approved the draft of the Resolution at the Federation Board meeting held on Thursday, 21 March 2019.

    It is now your turn as Federation members to share it with your community members and to ask for their input, suggestions, and research.

    This is your opportunity to contribute to our annual Budget Resolution. The final approved resolution is sent to the Board of Supervisors to inform them of what we community members consider important regarding fiscal issues.

    We will discuss and vote on your contributions then vote on final passage of our Resolution on the Fairfax County FY2020 Advertised Budget.

    Contribute, and vote at the membership meeting next Thursday, 28 March, 7:30 PM, Fairfax County Government Center, conference room 7.

    See you at this open-to-the-public meeting,

. . . bill
William Barfield
President
