Question 3:

What is the Board Of County Supervisor's budget guidance for proposed FY2020?

 

Answer 3:   Prior to adopting the FY17-21 Five-Year Plan as part of the FY2017 Budget, the Board engaged in a policy discussion regarding future budget guidance. The Board agreed that the past practice of using the residential tax bill cap was no longer appropriate, given the community desire to maintain existing services and add planned community infrastructure. New guidance, in the form of a 3.5% annual growth cap on future County operating expenditures, exclusive of operating expenditures associated with new capital expenditures, was adopted for the FY2018 Budget. This guidance remains in place for the preparation of the Proposed FY2020 Budget.  [Return to FAQ List]

Notes: COG = Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. All COG projections are from the round 9.0 forecast. The logarithmic growth trend line was generated using computer software based on the 2000 and 2010 Census population totals and the 2020 COG projected population for Prince William County. Growth in the county is projected to slow and eventually level off. This trend line is subject to change and fluctuation and could be impacted by phenomena such as fluxes in the real estate and economic markets or local planning and land use policy changes.  Additional information on PWC demographics are located at www.pwcgov.org/demographics.  [Return to FAQ List]
