Hynes Confirms $90-$100 Million Budget Shortfall Next Year, States Things Will Get Worse in 2011
In an election-eve statement to several Arlington County civic associations, Arlington County Board Member Mary Hynes confirmed that Arlington County will likely experience a $90 million to $100 million budget shortfall in 2010 and that Arlington's economy will be even worse in 2011. She also stated that Arlington County would close the budget gap of $90 to $100 million "through some combination of tax and fee increases and cuts in services." The County's current budget is about $1 billion.
