County Administrator Presents Proposed Budget

Hanover County Administrator, Cecil R. Harris Jr., has proposed a $463 million County Budget for the Fiscal Year beginning July 1.  The all-funds budget represents a 4.6% increase from the current year.  No property tax rate changes are proposed.


Most of the County’s budget is spent on Education and Public Safety.  A 2% compensation increase is proposed for all County and School employees with strong job performance.


Of the new positions in the non-schools part of the budget, 14 are in public safety, including 5 new deputy sheriff positions and 5 Fire/EMS positions.  The additional Fire/EMS personnel will provide 24/7 support for the Black Creek Fire Department.


Major capital construction projects funded in the FY19 budget include a new Atlee Library and a new park in Cold Harbor.


After hearing Harris’ proposal on February 14, the Board of Supervisors also received presentations from the Sheriff, School Superintendent and Fire Chief.


A public hearing on the County Administrator’s proposed budget will be held on April 4 at 7 p.m.
