It’s coming up on budget time, and residents will soon have the opportunity to talk about how they’d like to have their money spent. There are several ways Prince William County residents can get involved in the process, which begins in earnest on February 18, when County Executive Melissa Peacor presents a proposed budget to the Prince William Board of County Supervisors during a regular Board meeting.
On Saturday, February 22, County staff from the Office of Management & Budget (OMB) will host a public meeting at 9 a.m. in the Board of Trustees conference room at Chinn Park Regional Library at 13065 Chinn Park Drive in Woodbridge. For more information about the meeting, please visit the OMB webpage at www.pwcgov.org/budget.
On April 8, the Board will hold a public hearing during which citizens can provide input on the proposed budget. Anyone who would like to speak formally to the Board of County Supervisors regarding the budget is encouraged to attend and speak.
For those who have questions about the budget, they are encouraged to access the Budget Questions application on the OMB webpage where they can see what questions and answers have been posted, or send their own question for a response.
Of particular interest to the community is the budget questions database, which will be live once the budget is proposed. Last year, OMB provided answers to almost 400 questions received through this tool.
After questions are answered, presentations are given and the public provides comments, the Board of County Supervisors will adopt the Fiscal 2015 Budget during their regular scheduled meeting Tuesday, April 29, 2014.
