Arlington County is facing a projected $80 -$100 million budget gap for Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 (July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011). That amounts to about 10% of the total County budget. Balancing the County budget will require tax and fee increases and service cuts.
Detailed information on the FY 2011 budget is available on the Arlington County website. Arlington County will also host an online community Q&A about the budget this Thursday, Jan. 14, from 2-3pm. County government officials will answer questions from the online audience. A complete transcript of the session will be available afterwords.
