Overall, the adopted FY2016 general fund budget totals $785.6 million, an increase of 2.46 percent over the prior year total.

The centerpiece of the FY2016 plan continues to be additional investments in public safety, education, and capital facilities. The school division remains the largest recipient of new funding – representing more than half of the total growth in the FY2016 budget. On the general government side, the FY2016 plan includes additional manpower in Police and the Emergency Communications, additional equipment for first responders in Police and Fire, and the funding to operate the new North Courthouse Road Library. On the capital front, the adopted plan is headlined by a full $20 million slate of Revenue Sharing (transportation) projects and a continued emphasis on major maintenance.
