Board of Supervisors Hold Public Hearings for 
FY2025 Budget and VDOT Secondary Six-Year Plan  

At its May 14 meeting, the Board of Supervisors held two public hearings.  The first one was for the FY2025 Budget.  The proposed FY25 General Fund Budget total is $74,022,972, which is a 1.79% increase over FY2024.   The overall FY25 Budget of $162,651,134 (net of transfers) was a 5.18% increase over FY24, an increase of $8,011,826.  The overall introduced budget increases are chiefly related to an increase in the General Fund budget of $1,302,617 (1.79%), a $6,255,916 (7.13%) increase in the school budget created by an increase in state funding, a ($1,056,553, -11.2%) reduction in the Utility Fund Budget, and a reduction in inter-fund transfers of ($2,121,069, -6.25%) {reduction in General Fund transfers to the Debt Fund, School Operations and textbooks}.  No additional budget work sessions are planned, and budget adoption is targeted for May 28, using the Introduced Budget.  State changes will be considered through a budget amendment once the State numbers are provided to the County. 

In addition, the Board held a public hearing for the Virginia Department of Transportation Secondary Six-Year Plan for Fiscal Years 2025 through 2030 in Prince George County, and the Secondary System Construction Budget for Fiscal Year 2025.  The Board unanimously voted to approve the Plan and Construction Budget.  The project currently on the future plan is the Roundabout at Middle Road and Jefferson Park Road.  The estimated allocation for this year is $105,125.
