HERNDON TOWN COUNCIL SEEKS PUBLIC INPUT ON FY 2019 BUDGET
The Herndon Town Council is seeking citizens’ input on programs and services to be included in the town’s FY 2019 Budget.
On February 27, the council will hold a public hearing to solicit citizens’ guidance on the budget. Additionally, citizens may provide input directly via an online comment form.
According to Mayor Lisa Merkel, this early input from citizens is an important part of the budget development process. “As we consider resource allocation for the next fiscal year, we encourage citizens to share with us their views on programs and services that are most important to them,” Merkel said.
By April 1, Town Manager Bill Ashton will deliver to the council a proposed FY 2019 budget. The council will then conduct two public hearings on the proposed budget, at its April 10 and April 24 meetings. The town’s FY 2019 budget must be adopted by June 30, 2018.
All public hearings begin at 7 pm and are held at the Mary Ingram Council Chambers, 765 Lynn Street.
