(Update at 10:41 p.m.: The town hall has been postponed due to uncertainty of available financial resources for the upcoming. budget).
An upcoming town hall meeting on Fairfax County Executive Bryan Hill’s budget proposal will take place online.
Instead of conducting the town hall on March 30 in Reston, Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn says the meeting will take place on his Facebook page this Saturday (March 21) from 10-11 a.m. The meeting will also air on Channel 16 and be live-streamed online.
Alcorn said the shift was prompted by fears of the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Residents can send questions on the budget to [email protected] with the subject “Town Hall Question.”
Hill is seeking to increase the county’s real estate tax by three cents.
One cent of the proposed tax, which increases the annual tax bill by roughly $346, will be earmarked for affordable housing initiatives. The remaining two-cent increase will go toward the general fund and other board priorities.
