Both meetings will be held at the Center, which is located at 1234 Ingleside Avenue.

FY 2016 begins July 1, 2015 and ends June 30, 2016. MCC is supported by a real estate tax surcharge paid by residents of Small District 1A-Dranesville. At the Finance Committee Meeting of the Whole, MCC Governing Board Treasurer Craig Richardson, members of the Finance Committee that he chairs and other board members will begin the process of evaluating the financial needs of the Center. The evaluation will include a review of FY 2012 through FY 2014 year-end actuals, the current year’s budget (FY 2015) and a review of the costs of new program proposals for FY 2016.

Copies of the proposed budget will be available at the Center’s reception desk, on the Center’s website, and at the meetings.
