Vienna Notice of Intent to Adopt for FY2015-16

FCTA Note:The following notices were published in the Washington Times on 04/24/2015 and 05/01/2015. (Vienna does not have these on their web site in a web-readable format; and they're very hard to find there.) There are no changes this year to the water and sewer rates, and the budget summary closely tracks the earlier Budget and the Town Manager's March 6 "Budget Message".

Of most concern to the Vienna taxpayer is the Tax Rate notice, which asserts an effective tax rate increase of 2%. But wait...

So is your head spinning yet?
