County Administrator, Scott Stevens released his Fiscal Year 2024 Proposed Budget for James City County on March 28. The FY2024 Proposed Budget at $330.2 million is 42.7% above the FY2023 budget, with the General Fund portion of the budget increasing 6.45% over FY2023 to $231.1 million. The budget process for FY2024 involved several key considerations, including providing exceptional services to the community, employee retention and recruitment, community appearance, and investing in new capital improvement projects. Current economic conditions have also played a role, as unprecedented employment conditions have resulted in difficulties in hiring and retaining employees qualified to provide the exemplary service expected of James City County. The FY2024 Proposed budget provides for a $1,500 salary increase intended in April 2023 and a 5% raise effective July 1, 2023, for all employees. These efforts allow James City County to be more competitive in recruiting, hiring, and retaining qualified employees. These factors, in addition to the goals of the County’s Strategic Plan, helped to shape this proposed budget.Highlights include:
After a community meeting and a business meeting on the budget, the Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on the County’s FY2024 Proposed Budget at the May 9 meeting at 5 p.m. Once adopted, the FY2024 budget will cover July 1, 2023-June 30, 2024.Opportunities for citizen input are as follows:
