Henrico supervisors to hold April 12 public hearing on proposed fiscal 2016-17 budget

The Henrico County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing Tuesday, April 12 on the proposed budget for fiscal year 2016-17.

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m., one hour earlier than usual, in the Board Room of the Henrico Government Center’s Administration Building, 4301 E. Parham Road.

Residents may provide oral or written comments on the $1.2 billion plan, which would guide operating and capital spending for the year beginning July 1. The general fund, which supports the operations of Henrico’s general government, including the Police and Fire divisions, and Henrico County Public Schools, would total $810.9 million. That would represent an increase of $25.1 million, or 3 percent, over the current year’s plan.

The proposed budget recommends no change to the real estate tax rate of 87 cents per $100 of assessed value.

Residents are encouraged to register in advance to speak at the public hearing. To sign up, call Board of Supervisors Clerk Barry R. Lawrence at (804) 501-4318. For information on the proposed budget, call Director of Finance Gene Walter at (804) 501-4266 or Budget Director W. Brandon Hinton at (804) 501-5089.

Copies of the proposed budget are available for public inspection at Henrico libraries, the Office of Management and Budget in the Henrico Government Center and athenrico.us.

The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote April 26 to adopt a budget for fiscal year 2016-17. The board typically meets at 7 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month in the Board Room of the Henrico Government Center.
