Town Council Seeks Input on Budget

The Herndon Town Council is seeking citizens’ input on programs and services to be included in the town’s FY 2014 Budget.

On Feb. 12, 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 posted on the town’s website, www.herndon-va.gov. (See the budget item on the homepage.)

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 Art Anselene will deliver to the council a proposed FY 2014 budget. The council will then conduct two public hearings on the proposed budget, at its April 9 and April 23 meetings. The town’s FY 2014 budget must be adopted by June 30, 2013.

All public hearings begin at 7 p.m. and are held at the Mary Ingram Council Chambers, 765 Lynn St.

Information on the town’s FY 2013 budget will be posted throughout its development on the budget page at www.herndon-va.gov.
