The Prince William County Executive, Chris Martino, presented the Proposed Fiscal Year 2020 PWC Budget to the BOCS on Feb. 19. See presentation. The presentation includes budget highlights, information about the average residential tax bill, and the complete budget calendar. You have several weeks to make your voice heard about the proposed budget before a budget is adopted on April 30. Please call our office (703-792-4643) and ask to speak with Supervisor Anderson or Alex Stanley if you have input. Here is a link to the entire proposed budget.
BOCS is also considering a bond referendum to help with many road improvement, parks and library needs countywide. The bond referendum, if approved by the BOCS, will potentially be on the November Election Day Ballot so that taxpayers will vote yes or no on the bond. Projects are being considered in every district. There is a BOCS work session planned to discuss possible projects on March 12 at 2:00 p. m. (location TBD). Call our office (703-792-4643) if you would like the initial list of potential projects. Many projects will be deleted from this list and some may be added.
Here is the response to DIR 18-66 Residential Speeding
Prince William County Department of Transportation implements the most comprehensive residential traffic calming program in the Commonwealth. In collaboration with the Police Department, all available options of engineering and enforcement are currently practiced in the County. There is always room for improvement:
Upcoming efforts will include:
- In 2019, the Police Department will conduct significant traffic safety education and information delivery to our community. This effort will make use of our social media platforms, directed community engagement forums and other opportunities and strategies.
- Also in 2019, in addition to working with the Police Department and residential neighborhoods on traffic calming, the Prince William Department of Transportation will continue to examine alternative solutions to address speeding for situations where adopted transportation policies are not applicable.
They will also continue and increase efforts to:
- Use and deploy digital speed boards, additional signage, speed tables, etc.
- Direct enforcement efforts resulting from complaints/requests received through the traffic line, social media, Public Safety Communications Center, Public Information Office, Boards of County Supervisors, etc.
- Participate in grant funded campaigns to support efforts.
- School Resource Officers making driver safety presentations to educate young drivers.
