Council Adopts FY2022-23 Budget

From City Page at

FY2022-23 budget has no increases to the solid waste fee, water service charges, sewer charges, stormwater charges, and avoids a real estate tax rate increase.

With the exception of a few fee increases for permits within the department of Planning and Community Development, the FY2022-23 budget and Capital Improvement Program (CIP) are supported through natural growth in citywide revenues. Below are some of the key elements in the upcoming budget.

Update about meeting!

Press release about meeting.

Eastern Shore Drive Drainage Improvements page.

“Definitely happening in May extending into June”

About Ocean Park beach being “truly restored” like Chix Beach was:

“This is a substantial volume of sand.”

Watch discussion by Jim White & Dan Adams with Prez of OPCL.

About “truly restored” vs “placement sites” for beach nourishment:

“Then we’re going to turn our sights on Cape Henry Beaches.”

About the pile of sand at Lynnhaven Boat Ramp:

“We plan on doing a truck haul, & place that material between Page Avenue & the gazebo at Duck Inn.”

About volume of sand:

“Truly restored” Ocean Park beach is getting ~ 400,000 cubic yards, LBR holds ~ 60,000 cubic yards, when Lynnhaven Inlet is dredged – happening soon – that yields ~ 100,000 cubic yards.
