Grim Fairfax County Budget Forecast, FY 2016-2017

For those planning to attend the Hunter Mill District shindig this weekend at Frying Pan Park, we strongly recommend that you first review this presentation to the County's School and Supervisors Boards by County Executive Ed Long.  It show the substantial shortfall in revenue growth as jobs and housing growth has turned negative in the face of federal spending cuts.  At the same time, it highlights the need for added revenues to meet employee pension fund requirements and even the hiring of 250 more public safety officers in the next two years and an increase in their budget of about $25 million.

There are many statements in this presentation that should lead to good questions and probably not very good answers from our County leadership.
