CONSENT AGENDA REQUEST
Board of Supervisors Meeting Date:
A Resolution to Provide Local Aid to the Commonwealth
In the spring of 2008, the County received notice that the General Assembly had chosen to respond to shrinking State revenue growth by shifting responsibility for a portion of the shortfall to local governments. The State has made across the board reductions of approximately 4% in payments to local governments. The County is required to send $303,176 to the Commonwealth in Fiscal Year 2009. These reductions were anticipated in the adopted County Budget.
Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:
Consider adoption of the attached resolution.
Financial Impacts Analysis:
Payments to the State of $303,176 in FY 2009 and $302,232 in FY 2010.
The FY 2009 budget reflects a $486,000 reduction in State revenue which was based on a conservative estimate at the point when the budget was being prepared.
