Three town hall meetings on the proposed FY2013 budget are scheduled in the Braddock District.
Editor's Note: For those of you who live outside the city limits:
County Executive Tony Griffin presented the county's FY2013 proposed budget to the Board of Supervisors on February 28.
There are currently 11 town hall meetingsscheduled for community comment on the budget. Three are in the Braddock District. They are:
- Wednesday, March 14, 7 p.m. Kings Park Library, Braddock Hall
- Monday, March 19 7:30 p.m. Canterbury Woods Elementary Cafeteria
- Wednesday, March 28 7:30 p.m. Robinson Secondary School Gold Cafeteria
The proposed $6.7 billion budget provides taxpayers with no new services, gives the schools less than they requested, eliminates the police cadet program, and leaves the property tax rate at $1.07 per $100 of assessed value. The average homeowner will pay nearly $34 more, however, because the mean assessed value of homes has risen.
