Two Meetings Set for McLean Community Center’s FY 2019 Budget
Dranesville District Residents Encouraged to Attend or Submit Comments

McLean, VA — The McLean Community Center (MCC) Governing Board is holding two meetings in September to discuss and develop the Center’s fiscal year 2019 budget. Residents of Small District 1A-Dranesville are invited to attend these meetings and to submit suggestions and/or comments. The first meeting, the Finance Committee Meeting of the Whole, will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 12. The second meeting, a Public Hearing on the FY 2019 Budget, will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 27. The Center’s temporary administrative offices are located at 6631 Old Dominion Dr.


The FY 2019 budget year begins July 1, 2018 and ends June 30, 2019. MCC is supported by a 2.3 cents real estate tax surcharge paid by residents of Small District 1A-Dranesville. At the Finance Committee Meeting of the Whole, chaired by MCC Governing Board Treasurer Merrily Pierce, the full board will work on the FY 2019 budget. Each Board committee evaluates MCC departmental budget proposals on continuing and new programs, as well as the facilities and management of the Center. The departmental and consolidated budget proposals will include a review of FY 2017 year-end actuals, the current year’s budget (FY 2018) and new proposals for FY 2019. The preliminary consolidated budget that will be approved at the September 27 meeting will be posted on the MCC website, www.mcleancenter.org, by Monday, Sept. 18, a week before the public hearing.


The FY 2019 Budget Public Hearing will give residents another opportunity to review and comment on the Center’s FY 2019 budget. District residents who wish to speak at the public hearing are asked to call 703-790-0123, TTY: 711, to have their names placed on a speakers’ list. In addition, written comments may be sent to the Governing Board by mail (address to: McLean Community Center, 6631 Old Dominion Dr., McLean VA 22101), fax (703-653-9435) or email Executive Director George Sachs at george.sachs@fairfaxcounty.gov.


Copies of the proposed budget will be available at the Center’s reception desk, on the Center’s website, www.mcleancenter.org and at both public meetings. Residents who call the Center to announce their intentions to attend the work session will receive a budget package when they arrive.


In addition to these meetings, residents are invited to attend MCC board committees’ budget planning meetings in August and early September. The dates and times of those meetings will be posted on the Center’s website, www.mcleancenter.org.


Residents may continue to submit written comments after the public hearing through Monday, Oct. 23. The Board will approve the FY19 budget when it meets at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25. The final budget will be approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in spring 2018.
