City Page - April 10, 2014
Overall, this proposed budget is larger than the current budget by $49.2 million, or about 2.76 percent. That increase is roughly in line with the rise in inflation.
Revenues are finally looking up. The city’s biggest revenue source, the real estate tax, is on the rise after an unprecedented five straight down years.
Virginia Beach has a long tradition of providing outstanding services to its citizens. It’s a consequence of city employees’ longstanding culture of public service.
Virginia Beach is in better financial shape today than it has been in several years.
