Arlington County Budget: Growing and Growing

Over the next few weeks, Growls will update you on each area of the county and schools budget. Where it grows a little and where it grows a lot. In the mean time, you may want to review our thoughts on the budget from February 9, immediately after the Manager proposed his budget. The Washington Post provided only a brief review that weekend. On the other hand, both the Arlington Sun-Gazette and the Arlington Connection provided rather detailed reviews in their coverage last week. The least hopeful comment on the budget seems to be that of the Board's chairman, Barbara Favola, who indicated to the Connection, "The best hope for a tax cut lies in getting more revenue from Richmond." So stay tuned to Growls, and in the meantime, contact the Arlington County Board, and tell them to cut the real estate tax rate in a very significant way.
