Purcellville to hold public budget hearing Tuesday night

A public hearing will be held Tuesday at 7 p.m. to discuss the Town of Purcellville's proposed fiscal 2018 budget, which will take effect July 1.

The budget was presented by town manager Robert Lohr on March 22 and has been reviewed and discussed by the town council in four budget work sessions.

"The council has made proposed changes and the purpose of the hearing is for the community to give feedback on the various proposals," said Danny Davis, assistant town manager for the town of Purcellville.

Davis said the council and town is looking at creative ways to keep utility rates at a flat level so there are no or very minimal increases. Other proposed changes in the general fund include operational expenditures, communications, travel and training, other typical operational expenditures and enhancements that were proposed by town manager.

Town Council has already approved the real estate tax rate with no increase from the previous year year, the Fireman’s Field service district tax rate and the personal property (vehicle) and business property tax rates.

Council has proposed spending reductions that will allow the town to reduce the amount of money transferred (chargeback) from the Utility Enterprise funds, where most of the town's debt resides, to the General Fund, which typically runs surpluses, Davis said.

"This is the public's chance to speak if they have a particular project they want the council to consider," Davis added.
