On Wednesday, March 11, 2020, the County Administrator presented the proposed FY21 Budget to the Board of Supervisors. The following day, news began to circulate about COVID-19 cases in Virginia and on Friday, March 13, 2020, the County issued a notice to stop discretionary spending and County offices closed the following Monday. Less than 30 days after the effects of the pandemic began in Chesterfield, County staff had completely reworked the FY21 budget proposal and the FY21-25 Capital Improvement Program (CIP), resulting in a nearly $52 million decrease from the originally proposed budget. The revised FY21 Budget was reviewed and approved by the Board of Supervisors on April 22, 2020, pending additional action once the state budget was finalized. Further cuts were then approved on May 27, 2020 after the state numbers materialized.
