Herndon Town Council Holds Budget Hearings

A $48,827,100 budget was presented to residents to discuss at the April 8 Herndon Town Council meeting.

The meeting provided residents the opportunity to gather information about the 2014-15 budget. A second hearing will be held April 22, at 7 p.m. at 765 Lynn Street.

“In this climate, my proposed FY 2015 budget takes a conservative approach to allocation of town resources while continuing our focus on redevelopment of the downtown, planning for transit-oriented development near Metrorail's Herndon station and maintenance of the quality of our public facilities and infrastructure," stated Herndon Town Manager Arthur Anselene in a press release.

The total budget shows a 1.6 percent decrease from the current year’s budget. The biggest cuts were for interfund transfers and capital.
