Sully District Supervisor Michael Frey and School Board member Kathy Smith will host a town hall meeting on the Fairfax County budget March 13.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Little Theatre in Rocky Run Middle School in Chantilly. Fairfax County and Fairfax County Public Schools management and budget staff will also co-host along with the Western Fairfax County Citizens Association and Sully District Council.
County executive Ed Long’s advertised budget includes a 2-cent increase in the real estate tax rate, which is projected to raise nearly $42 million in count revenue.
When coupled with increases in real estate assessments, the proposed rate would cost the average county household about $262 more in real estate taxes.
The mean real estate tax assessment for the Chantilly area is projected to rise by 3.80 percent.
