NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
PROPOSED AMENDMENT OF FISCAL YEAR 2020/2021
CAROLINE COUNTY BUDGET
Notice is hereby given pursuant to Section 15.2-2507 of the Code of Virginia and amendments thereto, that the Caroline County Board of Supervisors intends to amend the Fiscal Year 2020/2021 budget to add approximately $2,680,638 in funds received by the County from the Commonwealth of Virginia as part of the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020. The funds will be used for expenditures incurred due to the public health emergency associated with the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID–19) pandemic. Funds have been requested by and allocated for the Department of Fire & Rescue, Sheriff’s Office, Caroline County Public Schools and the Department of Public Works/Utilities. Funds have also been set aside for expenditures related to the provision of grants to small businesses to reimburse the costs of business interruption caused by required closures and for expenses to facilitate distance learning, including technological improvements, in connection with school closings to enable compliance with COVID-19 precautions.
The allocation of each locality in the Commonwealth is based on the proportion that the locality’s population represents of the statewide total population. Counties must share an equitable portion of the funds with the towns included within their borders based on the same population formula.
A new fund will be created to track revenue and expenditures as follows:
Consolidated COVID-19 Costs to Date
