Provide Input on the Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 Budget
The City of Alexandria expects FY 2012 to be another challenging year as we continue to plan strategically for the future. As the City begins the budget process, we would like public input regarding the FY 2012 Operating Budget and Capital Improvement Program. Our goal is to link the budget process more closely to the Strategic Plan, adopted by City Council. On Saturday, October 16, the public is invited to attend City Council’s public hearing to offer your comments regarding the upcoming budget and how the City should use its limited resources to meet our most important community goals. The public hearing will be held in City Council Chambers (Room 2400), 301 King St., and starts at 9:30 a.m. For more information, visit www.alexandriava.gov/Budget.
