Falls Church Budget Boosts School Spending

From today's Metro section:

The Falls Church City Council unanimously adopted its budget Monday night for the fiscal year beginning July 1. The $67 million 2007 budget increases operating expenses by 3.4 percent over current spending and raises funding going to city schools by 10.5 percent.

The budget also includes a 2-cent reduction in the real estate tax, dropping the rate from $1.03 per $100 of assessed valuation to $1.01.

The budget funds a 4.1 percent cost-of-living raise for public school employees and adjusts salary scales to remain competitive in the region, city officials said. The city will also hire an affordable housing specialist.
