Resident asks supervisors not to skimp on schools, county services
As budget discussions loom on the horizon, one resident already has made an unusual request to the King George Board of Supervisors.
“Run our taxes up, if you need to, it’s not that much,” said Greg Holmes, who spoke during public comment Tuesday night. “I’d like you to remember there’s only one lap around the track in terms of education, and please give them my best shot.”
Holmes also asked the supervisors not to skimp on fire and rescue coverage and funding for the Sheriff’s Office.
Supervisors will start dealing with next year’s budget in the days to come. Tonight, (Feb. 6), the supervisors will meet with School Board members at 5:30 p.m. to discuss the budget. At 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 26, supervisors will have a work session on the budget. At the same time on Feb. 28, county officials will meet with the Service Authority. All meetings will be held in the county board room and are open to the public, although public comment will not be allowed.
