Fairfax County Supervisor Pat Herrity (R-Springfield) was on WMAL’s Larry O’Connor Show Tuesday evening. The discussion focused on the county’s budget shortfall, with so many businesses and residents now struggling as the result of coronavirus-related closures. “We’ve got to hold the line and not increase taxes,” Mr. Herrity said.
Later Tuesday evening, County Executive Bryan Hill unveiled a new budget that varies significantly from his earlier, tax-raising version. According to Mr. Hill, the revised budget axes the proposed 4 percent admissions tax as well as the 3-cent real estate tax hike.
