Feedback for FY 2019 Budget
- To what extent do you believe Arlington residents and businesses would be willing to pay more for services or programs through taxes or fees? Can you share specific types of services or programs where you think there would be broad support for an increased fee/tax to support the costs?
- What, if any, services or programs, could be reduced, if necessary? What types of impacts could these types of reductions potentially have for different stakeholders in the County?
- Do you have any additional suggestions for the County Manager as he develops the FY19 budget proposal?
Over any 10 year period, county spending should be limited to population growth and inflation. To ensure this transparency, the County Manager should include in his Proposed Budget, how the budget has grown -- given population growth and inflation -- over the prior 10 years. Taxpayers could then expect any tax increases (or decreases) to be scaled back (or increased) accordingly.
