$124 Million Budget Offered for Fairfax City

From today's Metro section:

Fairfax City Manager Robert Sisson has proposed a $124.3 million budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1 that includes increases in taxes and fees.

Sisson asked the City Council on Tuesday for a 3-cent increase in the city's real estate tax rate, to 74 cents per $100 of assessed value. He also proposed a doubling of the meals tax to 4 percent and a 3 percent increase in water and sewer rates.

If approved by the council, the budget would increase spending by 5.1 percent over the current fiscal year.
