Albemarle County Operating and Capital Budget


Budget Public Hearings: April 1, 2015 and April 8, 2015

Welcome to the Fiscal Year 2016 Albemarle County Operating and Capital Budget webpage. We hope this site will provide an easy and convenient way for you to stay engaged with our budget review process, and to communicate your feedback to elected officials who will make the final budget decisions.

The primary purpose of the budget process is to transform Albemarle County’s long-range plans and policies into real services and programs for the year. The budget provides detailed financial information on the costs of services and the expected revenues for the upcoming fiscal year. According to the Code of Virginia, all localities must adopt a balanced budget for a fiscal year beginning July 1 and ending June 30.

Albemarle County’s Operating and Capital Budget covers three major funds, as well as special revenue funds and the debt service fund. The General Fund includes programs and services in public safety, health and welfare, water resources, parks and recreation, community development and other local government operations as well as community agencies. The School Division Fund includes staff, materials, and programs in public education. The Capital Fund covers infrastructure maintenance and new projects for both local government and public schools.
