Manassas Could See Millions in State Funding Cuts

Several avenues of revenue being threatened.

The mayor, city council and city manager are meeting with state leaders today to discuss local legislative priorities ahead of the budget process.

A discussion of city and schools legislative priorities will take place today between city officials and Delegate Jackson Miller, R-Manassas, and Virginia State Senator Chuck Colgan, according to city documents.

City Manager Larry Hughes said $34M of city funding could be at stake when the General Assembly begins its regular session. City department heads are beginning to work on the budget now.

Hughes said the city hopes to come out with revenue intact but that it is a very big challenge.

According to the agenda, the meeting will take place at noon today.

What are your priorities as a taxpayer and resident of Manassas? Is it safety, schools?  Where do you think cuts can be made should Manassas lose the funding? Where would you like to see more money being spent/appropriated (i.e. schools, building new sidewalks, Route 28 improvements, etc.). Tell us in the comments.
