The Henrico County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing tonight, Tuesday, April 10th, on the proposed budget for fiscal year 2018 through 2019.

The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM in the Board Room of the Henrico Government Center’s Administration Building at 4301 E. Parham Road.

Residents can provide oral or written comments on the $1.3 billion plan, which would guide operating and capital spending for the year beginning July 1st. 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 $871.9 million–an increase of 3.8 percent over the current year’s plan.

The proposal makes no changes to the real estate tax rate of 87 cents per $100 of assessed value, which has been in place for years.

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 Ned Smither, Jr. at 804.501.4266 or Budget Director Justin D. Crawford at 804.501.5089.

Copies of the proposed budget are available at Henrico libraries, the Office of Management and Budget in the Henrico Government Center and online. A video overview is below.

The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote Tuesday, April 24th to adopt the budget. The board typically meets at 7:00 PM on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month in the Board Room of the Henrico Government Center.
