MONTGOMERY COUNTY, VIRGINIA APPROVED BUDGET for fiscal year 2023

BUDGET MESSAGE



March 7, 2022 Dear Honorable Members of the Board of Supervisors: I am pleased to present to you the Proposed Fiscal Year 2023 budget for Montgomery County. The proposed budget outlines the County’s fiscal plan of operations for the upcoming year, and was developed by our leadership team to meet the current and future needs of our County organization. The budget as proposed provides resources to address our core local government responsibilities, and also provides funding for areas that must be addressed as part of our service to a growing community. For nearly two years now, our community has dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been blessed that Montgomery County has not been fiscally impacted to the degree other localities were during the pandemic. While COVID-19 is still with us, the outlook for the new fiscal year suggests that our economy is recovering very well. Projections for the current fiscal year indicate County revenues are trending higher for real estate, personal property, and sales taxes, and that this trend will likely continue into the new fiscal year. These are very positive trends; however, the County is also experiencing inflationary pressures, which appear likely to continue into the immediate future. While we have weathered the pandemic very well from a fiscal standpoint, our employees have struggled at times to keep up with the constantly changing work landscape of Zoom meetings, mask mandates, illnesses in the workplace and in families, etc. As I mentioned in my budget message last year, County staff has worked diligently to focus on the future, but many days our employees have simply been grateful to get through the work day without a new mandate or challenge. This proposed budget provides both a significant investment in supporting our employees who are the cornerstone of our service to our citizens and businesses, as well as the momentum necessary to carry us forward into the years ahead. With momentum as a theme for this upcoming year, I am recommending a proposed budget for all funds of $220.4 million for fiscal year 2022-2023. The budget as proposed represents an increase of $9.1 million (4.3%) over the current fiscal year, and provides essential funding for continuation of our services to our citizens and businesses, maintains and strengthens the programs and activities of our various departments, and invests in our capital and human resources, which are crucial to maintaining a high level of service to our citizens and businesses. For fiscal year 2023, I am recommending no change in the real estate tax rate of 89 cents per 100 dollars of valuation. This marks the 10th consecutive year that I have recommended the real estate tax rate remain level, and this also reflects the Board’s strong fiscal oversight of the County’s financial condition.


Included in the proposed budget is additional revenue of $100,000 in anticipation of implementation of a 30 cent per pack cigarette tax. The General Assembly enacted legislation in 2020 that gave counties the authority to levy a tax on the sale of cigarettes beginning July 1, 2021. If approved by the Board, this tax can be implemented quickly in early fiscal year 2023. These revenues will be used to support Parks and Recreation personnel. The proposed Fiscal Year 2023 budget consists of $93.6 million provided from federal, state, and other designated funds, with the remaining $126.8 million representing County revenues, which are not designated for a specific purpose. As shared with you in a presentation in January, the County expects undesignated revenue growth of $5.4 million for the new year. Proposed 2023 funding for the County’s General Fund, net of transfers to other funds, totals $58.3 million. This is an increase of $4.6 million (8.5%) from the current fiscal year. Proposed funding for the Montgomery County Public Schools’ (MCPS) Operating Fund, net of transfers to other funds, totals $126.4 million, which is an increase from the current year of $4.4 million (4.0%). The proposed FY 2023 County budget also includes the Debt Service Fund ($24.7 million), the School Nutrition Fund ($4.6 million), the transfer to the School Capital Fund ($2.3 million), the transfer to the County Capital Fund ($3.6 million), funding for Economic Development incentives ($380,000), and the Law Library Fund ($17,600). The following charts show the projected revenue sources and expenditures for the proposed FY 2023 County budget:

ii


-

To maintain the County’s momentum in providing funding for future capital and maintenance projects, I am proposing the County continue to provide funds for the following: • • •

School Capital Fund - $2.3 million (2.5 cents of the real estate tax rate) for future school capital projects; Fire & Rescue Capital Fund - $1.4 million (1.5 cents of the real estate tax rate) for fire and rescue equipment; and County Capital Fund - $2.2 million (which includes 1.0 cent of the real estate tax rate, as well as $1.3 million from other revenues) for capital and maintenance projects.

As our County continues to grow, we must continue our momentum in addressing a number of critical long-term projects. With an on-going designation of $2.3 million, dollars will continue to accrue annually for the next capital project prioritized by the School Board. The Fire and Rescue Capital Fund will receive $1.4 million to ensure our volunteers are well-equipped to provide high quality service to our citizens. Other monies earmarked for the County Capital Fund provide dollars annually for the following: • • • •

$425,000 for the Auburn Park project, to move forward with the construction of the new park in Riner; $210,000 for Information Technology infrastructure projects, to address technology needs; $904,000 (or 1.0 cent of the real estate rate), to set aside $100,000 for future Valley to Valley Trail projects and $804,000 for other future County capital projects; and $750,000 for County capital maintenance projects, to fund proactive preventative maintenance and large-scale building repairs or replacements.

Of the $4,489,533 in additional County funding requested by the schools for fiscal year 2023, I am recommending an additional $2.1 million for the School Operating Fund, which represents approximately 39% of the overall new revenue of the County’s General Fund. I am also recommending the County provide $920,000 in one-time funds from the County’s fund balance for the acquisition of eight new school busses for MCPS, outside of the operating budget process. This will allow operating funds in the schools’ proposed budget to be used for other purposes within the MCPS system. As was shared with you in a recent presentation from the Superintendent, the Commonwealth has proposed a 5% salary increase for teachers, but at this point the state budget appears to provide less than half of the amount needed to provide all teachers in Montgomery County with this increase. This translates to another unfunded mandate from our state leadership, and creates an additional funding challenge for our schools. We must continue to remind our state legislators that increased state funding for our schools, both for operations and for infrastructure, is critical to maintaining the high level of K-12 education that our County residents have come to expect.

The following chart shows the amount of County funding provided for school operations over the past 10 fiscal years, along with the proposed funding for Fiscal Year 2023:

County staff is currently working with our financial advisors in anticipation of a bond sale this spring, which will provide funding for School and County capital projects. This proposed budget provides level funding for debt service for FY 2023. The County’s portion of the debt service budget includes sufficient capacity to absorb the estimated increased cost related to the debt issuance. Our financial advisors anticipate the additional school debt service will exceed the amount included in the proposed budget; however, any additional funds can be allocated from County reserves on a one-time basis during FY 2023, if needed. Throughout the past two years, our County employees have been industrious, helpful, and steadfast in their commitment to service to our citizens, all during a time of increased demand for services. In recognition of their efforts, and in an attempt to address compensation challenges related to inflation, I am proposing a 5% general wage increase for all full-time and part-time classified employees, effective July 1, 2022. For employees who have reached the top of their pay grade, I recommend a 5% one-time supplemental payment in lieu of a salary increase. Funding in the amount of $1,380,000 is included in the proposed budget to address this request, along with an additional $98,720 in funds to bring all positions in line with the proposed increase in the federal minimum wage. The preliminary results of our recent compensation and classification study show we have many positions throughout the County that are lagging behind the market rate for their respective positions. A previous study completed in 2018 identified this as an issue as well; however, we were only able to adjust compensation to reflect approximately 65% of the identified shortfall. With our most recent study, we hope to address the market at a much more competitive level, ideally 90%-95% of market. I am proposing $939,702 to implement the findings of the compensation and classification study, and v


to show our employees that the County is committed to providing competitive pay and benefits for their efforts. For the ninth consecutive year, the County does not anticipate an increase in our health insurance premiums as employees continue prudent use of health and prescription drug benefits. The County’s Virginia Retirement System (VRS) rate increased for FY 2023 from 12.44% to 13.7%, at a cost of approximately $255,000. Vacancy and turnover savings of $382,247 were used to cover the VRS increase, with the balance offsetting the general wage increase. Another significant investment proposed in the upcoming fiscal year budget relates to the County’s commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our citizens. The proposed budget includes approximately $947,000 for personnel and operational expenses of the County’s emergency medical services department. This is a newly-created initiative to provide paid first responder service for areas of the County that are struggling to support rescue calls with volunteer staff. The purpose of this program is not to replace our volunteer agencies, but to provide first response capabilities when a citizen calls for an emergency. This funding will provide resources for the equivalent of 9.6 FTE personnel, both full and part-time employees, who will be serving as basic life support (BLS) and advanced life support (ALS) responders. The County will be receiving the results of an emergency services study conducted by the Virginia Department of Fire Programs in the weeks ahead, and recommendations from the study will be reviewed with the Board to determine how best to strengthen the County’s response in this area. Montgomery County has been blessed for many years with strong volunteer fire and rescue agencies, and nothing that is being proposed is designed to diminish that appreciation, but to join with our volunteers in providing the highest level of support possible for our citizens. Several new positions are proposed in the FY 2023 budget to address the increased level of services and responsibilities in several of our operating departments. In County Administration, I am proposing the addition of a Safety and Health Compliance Specialist, who will evaluate work environments throughout the County, and develop and enforce policies and procedures to protect County employees in order to maximize workplace safety and minimize risk. In our Finance and Budget areas, I am recommending the addition of a Budget Analyst and also a Senior Accountant, due to the responsibilities associated with ARPA funding; long-term capital planning; increased grant, financial and regulatory compliance and reporting; along with ongoing fiscal agent responsibilities for several agencies, including the Economic Development Authority, Metropolitan Planning Organization, MBC Development Corporation, NRV 911 Authority, Regional Tourism, and the Public Service Authority. Another position has been funded for the Office of Elections to provide an additional assistant registrar, as a result of the greatly increased workload in this area. Funding is also included to add an additional maintenance worker in the Parks and Recreation department, and funds are provided to convert one part-time kennel assistant to full-time at the Animal Care and Adoption Center. While not included in the operating budget, I also recommend an additional position to support Economic Development’s broadband function. This will initially be funded with American Rescue Plan Act funds combined with existing funding for part-time wages in Economic Development and will transition to a County-funded position over the next several years. vi


In the County’s Information Technology area, additional funds of $101,000 are added to provide support for increased service costs, training, and hardware for various County operations. The Sheriff’s budget contains an additional $120,000 to address increases in contract medical support services for the jail. In General Services, an additional $152,000 is provided to address increased costs of utilities, maintenance, and general operating costs. While these are only three examples of increased funding needs, many other departments are also receiving increased funding to provide the momentum for ongoing support for our citizens and businesses. For the fifth consecutive year, I am recommending funding of $500,000 for New River Community College (NRCC) to allow NRCC to continue to provide the Accessing Community College Education program. These funds allow Montgomery County high school graduates to continue tuition-free education at NRCC, with their commitment to provide service hours to the community in return. The County has supported students through this program with a total of over $2 million to date. Once again, I am extremely grateful to the County’s department directors, agency heads, and Constitutional Officers for their active participation in the budget review process. This group of employees understands the fiscal challenges that face our local government, and they respect the Board’s fiscally conservative approach to budgeting. As occurs each year, requests for County funds far exceeded the resources available. Requests this year were no different and totaled $5 million in new funding (excluding compensation and fringe benefits). The County’s department directors, agency heads, and Constitutional Officers were part of the review process for these budget requests, and developed a ranking of the requests. Although not ranked by the leadership team, during the development of the annual budget, the County received requests for increased funds from agencies outside of the local government totaling almost $650,000. The proposed budget provides a total of $2.9 million to various outside agencies and organizations, some of which are mandated as the County is contractually or statutorily required to provide the funds. My budget message and the related budget workbook reflect many hours of work, review, revision, and preparation to get us to this presentation each year. Deputy County Administrator/CFO Angie Hill; Director of Management and Budget Marc Magruder; along with Paul Kaiser and Susan Dickerson, work dutifully each year to bring all this information together. Public Information Director Jennifer Tatum Harris, along with Derley Aguilar on the PIO staff, provide the creative magic that ensures our budget document, presentations, and information reflects our best efforts in communications. I look forward to reviewing the proposed budget information with you in more detail in the weeks ahead. A special budget work session will be held on Monday, March 21, for the Board to establish the advertised tax rate and advertised budget, in order to meet the required deadlines. The required public hearing on the proposed budget and tax rate are scheduled for a special Board of Supervisors meeting on Thursday, April 7, at 6 p.m. If all goes as planned, we ask that the Board approve the proposed FY 2023 budget at a special Board of Supervisors meeting on Monday, April 18, at 6 p.m. I realized several weeks ago that this is the 34th municipal budget I have had a hand in developing. A lot of things have changed since that first budget back in 1990, but one thing has not changed – the effort of our local government employees to provide an austere budget to provide for the capital, operations, and human resources needed to meet the demands of the community. Montgomery vii


County is a diverse and growing community, and its citizens demand a responsive, industrious, and steadfast county government. I believe the FY 23 proposed budget continues the momentum of addressing these needs, and I hope you feel that way as well after your review. Your continued support, and your leadership of our County government, mean so much to me and our leadership team. I am confident the upcoming fiscal year will bring more success for our County. I welcome your comments and suggestions as you review the attached information in the days ahead.

Respectfully submitted,

F. Craig Meadows County Administrator

OVERVIEW OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY



OVERVIEW OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY

Montgomery County, Virginia Since its founding in the eighteenth century, Montgomery County has experienced a rich history in agriculture, manufacturing, and technology with ties to notable historical figures to include George Washington and even Daniel Boone. The county has experienced consistent growth throughout the years. Montgomery County – which is home to two of the state’s four largest towns, Blacksburg and Christiansburg – is a high-tech community strategically located on the Interstate 81 corridor. The county provides a full range of services to its more than 100,000 residents to include: law enforcement; fire and rescue; planning and GIS; economic development; social services; courts; parks and recreation; general services; environmental services; animal control; libraries; and schools. Montgomery County traces its origin to 1776 when it was formed and named after General Richard Montgomery, an American hero of the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. The first settlement, Draper’s Meadow, was established in the 1740s but was destroyed by Shawnee Indians during the French and Indian War. Christiansburg, the county seat, was incorporated in 1792 and named in honor of Colonel William Christian. This community was an important stop on the Wilderness Road, which roughly corresponds to the present day U.S. Route 11. As the retail hub of the county, Christiansburg is host to several shopping centers and restaurants. Blacksburg was incorporated in 1871. The town originated on tracts of land donated by William Black – for whom it was named – and was established at the same site as the previous settlement of Draper’s Meadow. Blacksburg is home to Virginia Tech, one of the nation’s leading educational institutions and research universities. The OVERVIEW OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY : 7

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, VIRGINIA APPROVED BUDGET for fiscal year 2023

UNDERSTANDING THE BUDGET



U N D E R S TA N D I N G T H E B U D G E T P R O C E S S

Preparation of the Annual Budget

Montgomery County’s annual budget begins with the development of the proposed budget, the budget recommended by the County Administrator, and ends with the approved budget, which has been reviewed, adjusted and approved by the Board of Supervisors (Board). The County’s annual budget process begins in the fall of each year, when divisions, departments and agencies submit budget requests for the upcoming fiscal year. In January and February, County staff develop the proposed budget. The proposed budget and budget document are presented to the Board in March of each year. During that time, the Board begins deliberations to adjust the budget and develop the County’s approved budget. During budget deliberations, the Board holds public hearings for citizen comments and conducts work sessions. Citizen comments assist the Board of Supervisors in making decisions regarding spending. After budget adjustments, the final approved budget is adopted in April and becomes effective July 1. The budget runs on a fiscal year basis and is effective July 1 through June 30. The County’s 2023 Budget Calendar is shown below (some changes may occur during the process):

The Budget in General

The County’s budget is the government’s estimated revenues and expenditures for the fiscal year that begins on July 1 and ends on June 30. It consists of operating and capital budgets for county programs and services. The budget also allocates funds for the operating and capital needs of the public school system and contributes to a number of outside agencies. The County’s budget consists of the following funds: • • • • • • •

General Fund – which provides funding for the day-to-day operations of the County government. Law Library Fund – which provides funding for the day-to-day operations of the law library. School Operating Fund – which provides funding for the day-to-day operations of the School system. School Nutrition Fund – which provides funding for the day-to-day operations of the School food program. County and School Capital Funds – which provides an annual cash-to-capital allocation for new county and school capital needs. Debt Service Funds – which provides funding to cover the County and School’s outstanding debt obligations. EDA Incentive Fund – which provides funding for economic development initiatives.

The County’s Budget Process

In November of each year, County divisions are provided with budget targets for the upcoming fiscal year. The base budget target represents the base of personnel and operating costs anticipated for the upcoming year based on the prior year approved budget with adjustments made for personnel changes and mandates. One-time only funding from the prior year is excluded from the base budget. Along with the base budget target, County divisions are also provided the opportunity to request addenda items, which represent dollars over and above the base budget.

Base Budget Targets allow for the delineation between previously approved funding levels and requested

increases.

Base Budget Targets are established as follows: •

Personal Services - Includes all positions approved up to the issuance of the proposed budget U N D E R S T A N D I N G T H E B U D G E T P R O C E S S : 64


U N D E R S TA N D I N G T H E B U D G E T P R O C E S S and covers the estimated costs in fringe benefits. •

Operations and Maintenance - Caps funding at the level of the prior year approved budget, less adjustments for one-time only expenditure items.

Capital Outlay - Most capital outlay is removed from the base budget target as typically it is a nonrecurring expense. Some divisions maintain a permanent capital outlay allocation as they utilize the funding on a yearly basis to replace equipment on an existing replacement plan. Examples include motor vehicle and computer replacements.

Addenda Requests are increased funding over and above the Base Budget Targets. They must be presented as Addenda to the Base Budget. This means that additional justification for increased funding or the inclusion of capital outlay dollars must be provided with the request.

These adjustments are designed to clearly identify increases to operations and initiatives proposed by departments. The chart below illustrates the process.

Addenda Base Budget

Dollars requested for new or expanded services (initiatives)

All budget requests (base budget request and addenda) are due in December of each year and are evaluated for inclusion in the upcoming budget. When making budget requests, County divisions must address the following: • • • • • •

Is there sufficient workload to justify the request? Is there sufficient need to justify the request? Is the request related to a state or federal mandate? Are there legal requirements that will not be met if the request is not funded? Is the request linked to a specified outcome that is community or board driven? What tangible benefits can the County expect to experience as a result of funding the request?

All budget requests are evaluated based on available funding and the justification listed above.

How to Understand and Use This Document

With the goal of allowing decision-makers to focus on broader issues, the budget document consolidates similar functions. Efforts to streamline the process and reduce the volume of paper generated have changed the process in past years. The FY 2023 budget continues to consolidate information and array budget data in ways that U N D E R S T A N D I N G T H E B U D G E T P R O C E S S : 65

This budget document includes both the County’s general government operating budget, the Montgomery County Public Schools’ operating and nutrition budgets, the law library budget, county and school capital budgets, the debt service budget, and the economic development incentive budget. The FY 2023 budget document is organized into six major headings, each of which is separated by a large divider tab: • • • • • •

The Process and Approvals Required to Amend the Budget

After the budget is approved by the Board, the final approved budget is appropriated and becomes effective July 1. After July 1, the Board makes adjustments through additional appropriations. The budget is an estimate; therefore, as revenues and expenditure needs change, the appropriation may be adjusted. This can mean additional appropriations or reductions of appropriations. If the budget amendment exceeds 1% of the total expenditures shown in the currently adopted budget, the Board will hold a public hearing to gather citizen input. These adjustments are approved at the Board level.

How the original budget and amendments are incorporated into the accounting system

Each month, the Board holds public meetings where appropriations are approved if necessary. After these approvals, the appropriations are entered into the County’s financial system. Expenditures can then be made by the division using the budget adjustment. The County’s accounting system separately keeps track of the County’s original and revised budget separately. The revised budget changes throughout the year as appropriations are adjusted.

Basis of Accounting and Basis of Budgeting

The County’s accounting system is organized and controlled on a fund basis. The basis of accounting refers to the accounting method the County utilizes to recognize revenues and expenses. There are three ways in which a governmental entity can recognize revenue and expenses: cash, accrual, modified accrual basis. Under the cash basis method, revenue is recognized when cash is received and expenses are recognized when paid. Under accrual basis, revenue is recognized when earned and expenses are recognized when incurred. Modified accrual basis is a hybrid of cash basis and accrual basis. It recognizes revenues when they become both measurable and available. Expenditures are generally recognized when the related fund liability is incurred. The County operates on the cash basis of accounting for both budgetary and internal accounting purposes. This means that the County recognizes revenue when cash is received and expenses when bills are paid.

How budgetary compliance is monitored and enforced

Division directors are responsible for individual budgetary compliance. Departments are required to monitor and adjust their individual budgets and spending habits as needed throughout the year. They are required to stay within their approved expenditure authority. The County’s Director of Management and Budget monitors budgetary compliance at the macro level to ensure compliance with the County’s financial policies. Budgetary control is set at the division level. Division directors may move funds between individual line items, with the exception of salary line items, which require approval of the Finance/Budget Director. Appropriation control is set at the division level.

Conclusion

The Board of Supervisors uses this combination of documents and information to review and approve the annual budget. It is available as public information for review by any citizen who requests access to it and is found on the County’s web site at www.montva.com.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, VIRGINIA APPROVED BUDGET for fiscal year 2023

REVENUE SUMMARY



REVENUE SUMMARY

Revenue Forecasting Montgomery County’s general revenue forecast is developed based on past revenue trends, current revenue collections, and current and future local growth patterns. The County’s local economy, along with state and federal influences, contribute to the revenue picture. Budget staff, with data from the Commissioner of the Revenue and Treasurer offices, work throughout the year evaluating revenue trends, collection rates, and growth patterns to determine the revenue projection for the next fiscal year. Local, state, and national economic conditions all influence the local fiscal environment. The County’s revenue structure, job base, and major economic contributors provide a strong foundation for sustained growth. Montgomery County is home to Virginia Tech, which is the second largest public university in Virginia. Virginia Tech is also the largest employer in the County, providing jobs for approximately 12,000 employees. Montgomery County is fairly unique in that Virginia Tech’s presence in the community provides a stable foundation for economic growth. However, even with the presence of a stable and large employer, the local economy remains heavily dependent on the broader state and national economies. These broader economies are some of the most important factors in predicting increased revenue growth, even at the local level. The sudden onset of the pandemic in March of 2020 created a host of challenges for the economy and revenue forecasting. The pandemic has begun to shift to endemic and the Federal Government has provided economic stimulus; however, it is still unclear what the economic impact will be in the coming months and years. Like 2020, 2021 was a year of ups and downs as national, state and local officials struggled to respond to the pandemic while also trying to keep citizens safe and businesses open. In March of 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, also known as the CARES Act, provided direct cash stimulus payments to individuals, as well as economic assistance to workers, businesses and state and local governments in response to the pandemic. In December of 2020, a second pandemic relief package provided direct cash stimulus payments to individuals, as well as economic assistance to workers and businesses. In March of 2021, the Federal Government passed the American Rescue Plan Act, a third round of legislation totaling $1.9 trillion, that provided additional direct aid, added unemployment benefits and $350 billion of aid to state and local governments. As the government continues to respond to the pandemic, economists are still struggling to predict the economic impact over the next year. Opinions vary on the economic outlook for 2022 and 2023. Most forecasts are positive, but there is uncertainty and storm clouds remain on the horizon. On the positive side, unemployment rates have been decreasing following the job losses created by the pandemic, the economy is growing, interest rates are still low, and the stock market is holding steady. On the negative side, inflation is a problem, supply chain issues persist, the stock and bond markets are overpriced, and the real estate market is at peak levels. Demand for goods and services remain high and government spending will continue as a result of federal stimulus and pandemic response efforts. The U.S. economy is still the largest and most sophisticated economy in the world and the U.S. economy is improving.

National Economic Outlook The condition of the County economy is greatly affected by national and state economic conditions.

National Economic Outlook Economists do not expect a recession in CY 22, but a recession could possibly happen as early as CY 23. The Federal Reserve has stated that it will aggressively dial back its bond purchases and begin interest rate increases as early as March of 2022. The Federal Reserve’s response with its monetary policy will impact the broader economy – this could be positive or negative. While there are risks to the economy, most economic forecasts expect the Federal Reserve to achieve a “soft landing” with their monetary policy. This approach would allow REVENUE SUMMARY : 75


REVENUE SUMMARY continued growth, albeit at a slower rate, and inflation to slow. Most of the data suggest cautious optimism for economic growth going into 2022. This growth will depend on how the government, businesses, and consumers respond to the pandemic and fiscal policy changes.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) GDP is one of the broadest measures of the economy. This measure affects interest rates, fiscal budgeting, and U.S. monetary policy. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the GDP of the U.S. increased at a rate of 6.9% in the fourth quarter of 2021. In the third quarter, real GDP increased 2.3%. Analysts expect the economy to grow by 3.0% to 3.9% for 2022 and 2.1% to 2.9% for 2023. The ideal range for manageable GDP growth is in the 2% to 3% range.

Unemployment The unemployment rate is a second measure of the broader economy and it is one that personally affects most Americans. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national unemployment rate for 2021 was 5.3%, down from 8.1% for 2020. Comparing the latest information, the unemployment rate for December 2021 was 3.7%, down from 6.5% in December 2020. Some economists estimate that the unemployment rate will be between 3.1% and 4.5% in 2022 and between 3.3% and 4.3% in 2023.

Inflation – Consumer Price Index (CPI) The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of inflation. The CPI is also a measure that personally impacts most Americans. Unlike recent years, where the U.S. experienced low inflation, the annual rate of inflation accelerated in 2021 to a near 40-year high. In 2021, the percentage change (inflation rate) for the CPI was 4.7%, up from 1.2% in 2020. Comparing the latest information, the inflation rate for December 2021 was 7%, up from 1.4% in December 2020. High inflation rates mean that purchasing power is being degraded and the cost for goods and services are rising. It is the hope that the Federal Reserve’s policy changes will help curb inflationary pressures going forward. The inflation rate is estimated to remain high for the first part of 2022 and then taper by the end of the year. Economists are estimating that inflation could be around 3.6% to 4.3% by the end of 2022 and 1.9% to 3% by 2023. The Federal Reserve’s target range for inflation is 2%.

Housing and Auto Sales The housing market had another strong year of growth in 2021, fueled by a low housing supply, low interest rates, and new construction not meeting the demand of buyers. These factors, in turn, pushed up home prices. A predicted rise in interest rates will likely put additional stress on housing affordability going into 2022. Home sales are expected to soften and slow to a more reasonable and sustainable pace in 2022. Inventory may still be an issue; however, annual home value growth is expected to slow. For the auto industry, an estimated 15 million new vehicles were sold in 2021 compared to 14.5 million units in 2020. For 2022, forecasters estimate that U.S. auto sales could be between 15.2 and 15.4 million units. The biggest issue for auto industry in 2021 was low inventory. Also, an undersupply of new vehicles increased the value of used vehicles. Constrained inventory for both new and used vehicles is likely to remain during 2022.

State Economic Outlook According to economists, Virginia’s economic outlook is consistent with national trends with the economy showing signs of slowing growth for 2022.

REVENUE SUMMARY : 76


REVENUE SUMMARY Virginia Unemployment According to the Virginia Employment Commission (VEC), the unemployment rate for the Commonwealth of Virginia for 2020 was 6.2%, up from 2.7% in 2019. Comparing the latest information, the unemployment rate for December 2021 was 2.7%, down from 5.7% in December 2020. Like the U.S., unemployment rates at the state dropped as businesses reopened and citizens went back to work. State economists expect personal income to grow at 4.6% for FY 22 and 3.9% in FY 23; employment is expected to increase 1% for FY 22 and then grow to 1.4% for FY 23.

State General Fund Revenues State General Fund revenues for FY 21 rose by 14.4%. State General Fund revenue projections for FY 22 and FY 23 are expected to increase by 4.1% and then decrease 0.63%. Sales tax collections are estimated to grow at 6.3% for FY 22 and 4.1% in FY 23.

Other State Funds More than half of the State’s revenues are non-general fund revenues, which are designated funds earmarked for specific purposes. These funds include federal grants, institutional revenue, transportation funds, and Master Tobacco Settlement Agreement funds. Non-general fund revenues are expected to increase by 13.2% in FY 22 and decrease by 15.9% in FY 23. The decrease in FY 23 is related to Federal Stimulus money provided directly to the state.

Local Economic Outlook Like the U.S. and State economic outlooks, Montgomery County’s economic outlook is viewed with cautious optimism. The County’s unique qualities and job base provide a strong foundation for sustained growth. Local employment rates are consistent with state and federal trends. According to the Virginia Employment Commission (VEC), the unemployment rate for Montgomery County for 2020 was 4.8%, up from 2.7% in 2019. Comparing the latest information, the unemployment rate for December 2021 was 1.9%, down from 4.2% in December 2020. Like the national and state trends, unemployment rates in Montgomery County dropped as businesses reopened and citizens returned to work. Personal Prop 14.8%

REVENUE SUMMARY

County Resources Resources within the County budget are classified as either designated or undesignated. •

Designated Resources represent revenue accounts that are mandated for specific uses including: •

Support from the State Compensation Board for constitutional officers, court fees, fees for services and programs;

Direct state aid for public assistance payments;

State and federal funds for schools; and

Support for human services programs.

Undesignated Resources fall into two categories: undesignated revenue and fund balance. Undesignated revenue represents dollars which may be used in the budget at the Board’s discretion. These include property taxes, sales taxes, and similar local sources of revenue. Total budgeted revenue for FY 23 is $220.8 million with $93.6 million considered designated. Of this designated amount, $75 million or 80.2% is earmarked for schools. Undesignated revenue dollars that may be used in the budget at the Board’s discretion total $127.2 million. Of this amount, $56 million goes to the public schools for operations, and $22.7 million of the undesignated dollars support debt service costs for county and public school facilities.

Local Revenue Patterns and Growth for FY 23 Local revenue growth is heavily dependent on property taxes, especially the real estate tax, which is the County’s single largest local revenue source. Real estate revenues represent 61% of the County’s total undesignated revenue. Personal Property tax revenue (motor vehicles) is the County’s second largest local revenue source; it represents 14% of the County’s undesignated revenue. Sales and Use Tax is the third largest local revenue source; it represents 9% of the County’s undesignated revenue. Taken together, these three revenue sources account for 84% of the County’s undesignated revenue and represent the bulk of revenue growth the County experiences on a yearly basis. FY 21 was a dynamic year for County revenue. While it was expected that local government revenues would suffer significantly due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic, County revenue collections in total exceeded estimates. Total undesignated revenue collections exceeded estimates by $3.9 million. In response to the pandemic, the Board of Supervisors approved a resolution waiving penalty and interest on the June 5, 2020 real estate payment for 90 days to help tax payers cope with the pandemic. This payment extension resulted in the County receiving $1.3 million of FY 20 revenue in FY 21. Even with these funds removed from the FY 21 collection, the County still exceeded the overall undesignated revenue estimate by $2.6 million or 2%. Areas of strong growth were found in real estate taxes, sales taxes, recordation taxes, and additional taxes on deeds. In FY 22, even with the lingering effects of the pandemic, the County is experiencing undesignated revenue growth that is significantly above the County’s normal trend. For FY 22, the County expects to exceed total undesignated revenue collections by $7.5 million. While the County expects to retain some of this growth going into FY 23, most of this extra revenue is likely to be one-time in nature. Most of this extra revenue is related to the pandemic and the federal government’s response to it. Like the rest of the U.S., the County is experiencing: the effects of supply chain blockages; an undersupply of new motor vehicles that are boosting used vehicle prices; sales tax collections that are 18% above normal trend due to pent up demand, government stimulus, and inflation; delinquent tax collections resulting from collection agency efforts and consumers’ ability to pay; and recordation taxes due to increased real estate sales and valuations. With an end to direct government stimulus from the Federal REVENUE SUMMARY : 78

*Calculated in Millions

Most of the FY 22 surplus is likely to be one-time in nature. Of the $7.5 million surplus in FY 22, $2.2 million is from delinquent property taxes. The County has a finite amount of delinquent tax available for collection; as these funds are collected, less revenue will be available for future year collections. The County expects to maintain $0.6 million going into FY 23 from this category. Sales tax collections are significantly above the County’s normal trend. Collections are likely the result of pent up demand, excess savings during the pandemic being spent, an increase in credit card use, and the use of federal stimulus dollars. The County expects to return to normal trendline growth for this category for FY 23 and retain $0.6 million of the $2.8 million surplus. Recordation taxes, which are tied to real estate transactions, while providing a $1.3 million surplus in FY 22, are expected to return to pre-2020 levels in FY 23. A rise in interest rates and a projected softening of the real estate market will likely cool the housing market going into FY 23. The County expects to retain $0.1 million of the $1.3 million surplus. Overall, the County is estimating a FY 23 base revenue increase of approximately $2.5 million. For FY 23, the County projects an increase of approximately $3.3 million in new undesignated revenue growth. This increase is made up of $2.1 million in new real estate construction, $0.8 million in personal property motor vehicles and other personal property categories, and $0.3 million in sales tax, and $0.1 million in a new cigarette tax. Total undesignated revenues are estimated to provide $5.8 million in new money for FY 23. General Fund designated revenues are estimated to increase by $1.4 million. Most of this increase is due to the reconciliation of compensation board budgets for the FY 23 base and a 5% increase in compensation board revenues provided for raises to employees in constitutional officers’ offices for FY 23 ($0.7 million) and state/federal designated funding for public assistance programs in Social Services ($0.6 million). The remaining $0.1 million is added for increased revenues for the Registrar and other user fee increases. Total County General Fund revenue growth for FY 23 is expected to reach $7.2 million.

Real Estate Revenue

Real estate values are based on the actual accessed value as of January 1, 2021, and estimated increases for new construction. New real estate construction values are expected to be higher than the last several years. Based on building permit data from January 1, 2021, to January 1, 2022, assessed values are expected to increase by $183 million. Growth from January 1, 2022, to January 1, 2023, is estimated at $260 million. For FY 23, real estate tax revenue is estimated at $77.8 million, which is $2.4 million more than the FY 22 estimate. Real estate values totaled $8.9 billion on the CY 21 land book, including land use. The CY 22 land book is estimated to be $9.1 billion. The CY 23 land book is estimated at $9.4 billion.

Personal Property

Personal property tax collections are based on the 2021 tax book, which is the most recent documentation of assessment values. From this data, the 2022 values are estimated. In addition, prior year collection rates are used as predictors of future year collections. The rate of collection in FY 21 and FY 22 is used to estimate the rate of collection in FY 23. The tax rate for personal property categories is $2.55 per $100 of assessed value. This category includes motor vehicles (the County’s second largest source of revenue), business furniture and fixtures, and computer equipment. FY 23 estimated taxes on motor vehicles total $18.2 million; business furniture and fixtures total $3.8 million, and computer equipment total $0.5 million. Taxes on motor vehicles are estimated to grow by $1.6 million over the FY 22 estimate. Most of this growth is tied to the undersupply of new vehicles and the boosting of used vehicle prices ($1.1 million) and normal trend growth ($0.5 million). Business furniture and fixtures personal property revenue is expected to grow by $0.1 million, while personal computer equipment revenue is also expected to grow by $0.1 million. In total, personal property revenue categories are expected to provide $1.8 million in growth.

Sales and Use Taxes

Montgomery County’s third largest category of undesignated revenues is sales and use tax. Sales and use tax is a consumption tax paid for sales of certain goods and services. For FY 21, the County collected $10.7 million. Due to the uncertainty of the pandemic, the County estimated $10.2 million for FY 22; however, as the year progressed, REVENUE SUMMARY : 81


REVENUE SUMMARY sales tax collections far exceeded initial revenue projections. Collections to date for FY 22 project a revenue surplus in this category of $2.8 million, which is significantly above the County’s normal trend. Based on trend analysis, the County is estimating $11.1 million for FY 23, which is $0.9 million more than the FY 22 estimate. This estimate includes base growth of $0.6 million and new growth of $0.3 million. FY 05

Fiscal Year

State Budget: Local Impact

Over the past several fiscal years, the state has reduced the amount of funding provided to local governments. Public education, public safety, Constitutional Officers, local libraries, and other local services have all been affected. In many areas, the state has shifted the burden of revenue generation to local governments. For the Montgomery County Public School System, the Governor’s budget includes an additional $2,295,303 in new funding for general school operational needs. Additional state funding of $610,215 is estimated to support a 5% compensation increase for Constitutional Officers and their staff for FY 23.

County Tax Rates The approved budget does not change tax rates from FY 22 to FY 23, including the approved real estate rate of 89 cents. All tax rates are per $100 of assessed value. County Tax Rates

Fund Balance No General Fund balance dollars have been used to balance the FY 23 budget.

Reserve Funds Reserve funds are dollars set aside that are either not required for expenditure in the current year or are earmarked for a specific future purpose.

Why Do We Need Reserve Funds?

The financial health of a locality is determined based on its “operating position,” which refers to three factors: •

The County’s ability to balance the budget using current revenue (not using fund balance in the operating budget).

The County’s ability to maintain reserves for emergencies (establishing reserve funds for specific purposes).

The County’s ability to maintain sufficient cash to pay expenses on a timely basis (ensuring an adequate level of cash flow reserves).

Why Shouldn’t We Use Reserve Money to Balance the Budget?

These funds are “non-recurring.” The use of these funds can only be for items that do not require expenditures in future years (one-time-only expenses). These funds cannot be used for salary increases, additional personnel, or program expansion that recurs in future years. For example, if $1,000,000 of reserve monies were used in the budget to cover salaries, the next year there would be $1,000,000 worth of costs and $1,000,000 less money. The County’s independent financial advisors have recommended a policy of maintaining undesignated fund balance REVENUE SUMMARY : 84


REVENUE SUMMARY between 10% and 12% of operating revenue. The County maintains a number of specific reserve funds to respond positively to unforeseen circumstances, should they arise in the current year or the next year’s budget. The County’s primary reserve is the Cash Flow Reserve, which sets aside approximately $24 million or 10.87% of the total FY 23 Budget to ensure sufficient cash to pay the bills. Other reserve funds that the County maintains include, but are not limited to: •

Capital Reserve to support unanticipated capital needs not funded in the Capital Projects Fund;

Landfill Post Closure Reserve to support potential costs associated with monitoring and remediation of closed landfills;

Facilities and Maintenance Reserve to support unanticipated facility and general maintenance items;

Technology Reserve for technology projects and infrastructure requirements necessary for these projects;

Rainy Day Reserve to address major unanticipated financial issues;

Line of Duty Reserve to provide funds for family members of employees that are injured or killed in the line of duty;

Parental Leave Reserve to provide funds to cover additional staffing costs, such as overtime, for departments whose employees are on extended leave;

Road Maintenance Reserve to earmark the County share of the Revenue Sharing Program; and

Conservation Easement Reserve to support conservation easements and the County’s land use program.

Financial Policies The Board of Supervisors adopted financial policies and goals to influence and guide the financial management of the County. The policies were adopted in March of 2000 and updated in October of 2015. The importance of adopting and following these policies include: •

Insulating the County from fiscal crisis,

Enhancing the ability to maintain financial credit by achieving and maintaining the highest bond ratings possible,

Promoting long-term financial stability by adhering to clear and consistent guidelines,

Directing attention to the financial condition of the entire County rather than a single issue or area,

Promoting coordination of long-term financial planning with daily operations, and

Providing the Board of Supervisors and citizens a framework for measuring the fiscal impact of services provided against established guidelines.

See Revenue Summary, Appendix B for the specific policies.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, VIRGINIA APPROVED BUDGET for fiscal year 2023

R E V E N U E SUM MARY, AP PEN D IX B

Financial Policies



REVENUE SUMMARY

Appendix B: Financial Policies Capital improvement budget policies 1. The County will consider all capital improvements in accordance with an adopted capital improvement program. 2. The County will develop a five-year plan for capital improvements and update each annually. 3. The County will enact an annual capital budget based on the five-year capital improvement plan. Future capital expenditures necessitated by changes in population, changes in real estate development, or changes in economic base will be calculated and included in capital budget projections. 4. The County will coordinate development of the capital improvement budget with development of the operating budget. Future operating costs associated with new capital improvements will be projected and included in operating budget forecasts. 5. The County will use intergovernmental assistance to finance only those capital improvements that are consistent with the capital improvement plan and County priorities, and whose operating and maintenance costs have been included in operating budget forecasts. 6. The County will maintain all its assets at a level adequate to protect the County’s capital investment and to minimize future maintenance and replacement costs. 7. The County will project its equipment replacement and maintenance needs for the next several years and will update this projection each year. From this projection a maintenance and replacement schedule will be developed and followed. 8. The County will identify the estimated costs and potential funding sources for each capital project proposal before it is submitted for approval. 9. The County will attempt to determine the least costly financing method for all new projects.

Debt policies 1. The County will confine long-term borrowing to capital improvement or projects that cannot be financed from current revenues except where approved justification is provided. 2. When the County finances capital improvements or other projects by issuing bonds or entering into capital leases, it will repay the debt within a period not to exceed the expected useful life of the project. 3. Net debt as a percentage of estimated market value of taxable property should strive to be below 3.0% but not exceed 4.0%. 4. The ratio of debt service expenditures as a percent of governmental fund expenditures (General Fund plus School Operating Fund expenditures less the General Fund transfer to the School Operating Fund) should strive to be below 10% but not exceed 12%. 5. The County will review the 10-year tax supported debt and lease payout ratio on an annual basis, and intends to maintain the ratio at 60% over a five-year period, with the ratio being no less than 55% in any one year during the period. 6. The County recognizes the importance of underlying and overlapping debt in analyzing financial condition. The County will regularly analyze total indebtedness including underlying and overlapping debt. REVENUE SUMMARY : 105


REVENUE SUMMARY 7. Where feasible, the County will explore the usage of special assessment, revenue, or other self-supporting bonds instead of general obligation bonds. 8. The County will retire tax anticipation debt, if any, annually and will retire bond anticipation debt within six months after completion of the project. 9. On all General Fund support, debt-financed projects, the County will attempt to make a down payment of at least 5% of total project costs in the aggregate from current resources. The long-term goal is to annually designate a portion of General Fund cash for one-time capital projects.

Reserve policies

The County will establish an emergency reserve to pay for needs caused by unforeseen emergencies, including unanticipated expenditures of a nonrecurring nature, or to meet unexpected small increases in service delivery costs. This General Contingency will be budgeted at not less than 1.0% of the General Fund. Unassigned fund balance at the close of each fiscal year should be at least 12% of the General Fund plus School Operating Fund revenues, excluding the General Fund transfer to the School Operating Fund. Should the County find it necessary to access these funds in an emergency situation the Unassigned Fund Balance would be allowed to fall below the target described above. Any appropriation which causes Unassigned Fund Balance to drop below 12% will occur only after the County Administrator presents to the Board of Supervisors a plan and timeline for replenishing the balance to a minimum of 12%.

Investment policies OVERVIEW

The Montgomery County Board of Supervisors recognizes that it is the explicit constitutional responsibility of the County Treasurer to invest County Funds in accordance with Virginia Law. It is the desire of the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors to provide the Treasurer with the most timely information in order to best execute the powers of the Treasurer’s Office. To that end, the following Investment Policies are intended as a guide for the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors to facilitate this relationship.

POLICIES The County will attempt to provide a cash-flow analysis of all funds on a continuous basis. Disbursement, collection, and deposit of funds will be scheduled to insure maximum cash availability. The County will develop an annual cash-flow budget for County Operations to be reviewed quarterly with the Treasurer.

Each year, Compensation Board funding is reconciled to the County approved budget when final numbers are received from the state.

($45,000) in Designated Grant Revenue is Reduced from the Commonwealth Attorney’s Revenue Budget – In the past, the Commonwealth Attorney received $45,000 in grant funds to support

an Assistant Commonwealth Attorney position. In the summer of 2021, DCJS announced all of those grants would end in December 2021. DCJS then modified the date and continued the grant until June 2022. After June of 2022, the grant funding will no longer be available to support this position. With this revenue reduction, the County will be fully funding the current position which was partially paid for by the grant. The increase to the County budget to cover the grant is $45,000 per year. •

$39,652 is Added to the Commonwealth Attorney’s Compensation Board Revenue – These funds account for a 5% across the board salary increase included in the state’s budget for locally supported positions July 1, 2022. Since the County is providing a 5% compensation increase to all County funded positions in FY 23, these funds provide additional revenue to the County. Each year, Compensation Board revenue is reconciled to the County approved budget when final numbers are received from the state.

Approved addenda items are often funding provided for new initiatives or expanded services but may also include normal cost increases. Addenda reductions may reflect reduced revenue and/or expense needed to equalize revenue shortfalls.

$7,500 is Added to the Courthouse Postage Machine Budget – The courthouse postage machine

is managed by the Clerk of the Circuit Court. Costs are paid centrally and then distributed to departments as postage is used.

Base Budget Discussion

The base budget is the estimated minimum cost for providing continued services/operations for each division/ department. It is based on the prior year approved budget with adjustments. This budget shows how much it would cost in the next fiscal year to operate the same programs in the current fiscal year.

Base Salary and Fringe Benefit Adjustments – For FY 23, the County budget includes an increase in

Base Compensation Board Revenue Adjustments – A total of $10,937 is added to the base Compensation Board revenue budget. These funds account for the adjustment of revenues as reported by the State Compensation Board reconciled to the FY 22 County approved budget. Each year, Compensation Board funding is reconciled to the County approved budget when final numbers are received from the state. These extra funds are from the 5% across the board salary increase included in the state’s budget for locally supported positions July 1, 2021.

the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) rate from 12.44% to 13.70%. All other fringe benefits rates remain unchanged. The FY 23 approved budget includes funding to cover a 5% compensation increase and funding for the implementation of the County’s new Compensation and Classification Plan, both effective July 1, 2022.

Addenda & Reductions Discussion Addenda consist of dollars over and above the base budget target for operating and capital outlay expenses. Approved addenda items are often funding provided for new initiatives or expanded services but may also include normal cost increases. Addenda reductions may reflect reduced revenue and/or expense needed to equalize revenue shortfalls.

$520,373 is Added to the Sheriff’s Compensation Board Revenue – These funds account for a

5% across the board salary increase included in the state’s budget for locally supported positions July 1, 2022 ($224,538). Since the County is providing a 5% compensation increase to all County funded positions in FY 23, these funds provide additional revenue to the County. In addition to the 5% increase, an additional $295,835 is added to move the minimum cost of an entry level Sheriff Deputy to $42,000. Each year, Compensation Board revenue is reconciled to the County approved budget when final numbers are received from the state.

Retirement and Insurance

The County has coverage for fire and rescue members which includes accident and sickness, workers compensation, life insurance, and retirement benefits.

Fire Departments

Fire departments provide volunteer fire services to County and town residents. The Virginia Department of Fire Programs’ basic training for firefighters involves a minimum of 192 hours, which includes 160 hours of Firefighter Level 1 training and 32 hours of hazmat training. This does not include the in-house training required to operate the equipment of individual departments.

Regional Fire and Rescue Training Center

The Regional Training Center is available to all agencies in Montgomery County as well as Floyd, Giles and the Radford Army Ammunition Plant Fire Departments. The Training Center property is owned by the Blacksburg Fire Department Foundation with a 25 year lease to Montgomery County. All buildings on site have been purchased through private donations and grants, and the County insures the property. The Town of Christiansburg and the Town of Blacksburg provided labor and equipment for site development. Volunteer fire personnel constructed training aids such as a maze, ladder tower, and ventilation simulator for use at the center.

ANIMAL CARE AND ADOPTION CENTER

About

The Animal Care and Adoption Center, which opened in 2017, combines animal care and recreation services. Located on five acres along Cinnabar Road near the County’s Frog Pond recreational area, the 16,300 square foot Center’s primary goal is to increase animal adoptions by expanding visitation and maximizing visibility through attractive design, in a recreational setting. The Center represents a transition from a traditional pound facility to a community hub for companion animal resources and leisure time events. Donations and County dollars support the Center and its staff.

Animal Care and Adoption Center

The Center offers educational tours and classes, vaccination and spay/neuter clinics, pet training classes, animal demonstrations, outdoor events and other leisure time activities. Long range plans include integrating the Center with a dog park and walking trails connecting the Frog Pond, picnic shelters, and disc golf course, making the entire area a recreation destination.

Animal Care and Adoption Center-Donations

Donations support 23% of the facility and staffing costs to operate the Center.

Base Salary and Fringe Benefit Adjustments – For FY 23, the County budget includes an increase in

the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) rate from 12.44% to 13.70%. All other fringe benefits rates remain unchanged. The FY 23 approved budget includes funding to cover a 5% compensation increase and funding for the implementation of the County’s new Compensation and Classification Plan, both effective July 1, 2022.

Addenda & Reductions Discussion

Addenda consist of dollars over and above the base budget target for operating and capital outlay expenses. Approved addenda items are often funding provided for new initiatives or expanded services but may also include normal cost increases. Addenda reductions may reflect reduced revenue and/or expense needed to equalize revenue shortfalls.

$30,044 is Added to Convert One Part-time Unclassified Kennel Assistant into One Full-Time Classified Kennel Assistant (One FTE) – Over the last two years, the ACAC has struggled to find part

time kennel assistant help. As a result, the kennel area is operating under a constant staff shortage. By reclassifying one of the PT positions to a FT position, the County will be able to stabilize team staffing and scheduling challenges and provide a more consistent level of care to ACAC animals. This increase is supported with $18,500 in designated fee revenue.

CHILDREN’S SERVICES ACT

About

The Children’s Services Act for At-Risk Youth and Families (CSA) was established by the General Assembly to improve coordination, eliminate duplication of services and ensure that costly residential care is provided only in cases where it was clearly warranted. The law requires localities to establish Community Policy and Management teams, and Family Assessment and Planning teams to administer the program. The law also mandates that certain groups of children receive services, primarily special education and foster care. The County is required to provide a local match for all expenditures.

Children’s Services Act

The Community Policy and Management Team (CPMT) is responsible for developing policies, managing funds allocated to the County, and authorizing expenditures of these funds. CPMT is comprised of at least one elected or appointed official and agency heads from the local Department of Social Services, school system, Community Services Board (mental health) and the Court Services Unit (juvenile justice), a parent and a private provider. Each CPMT must also establish and appoint at least one Family Assessment and Planning Team (FAPT) to work with families to develop an individualized family service plan or plan of care based on the strengths and needs of the family.

About

The Department of Social Services (DSS) division assists families and individuals in becoming socially and economically self-sufficient and independent. Benefit programs include temporary assistance for needy families, food assistance, Medicaid, energy assistance, general relief, fraud prevention and children’s medical security insurance. DSS works closely with other community agencies to promote the stability and self-sufficiency of community families through referrals to services not available in this agency. It also promotes the creation of services not currently available in the community. The agency works to avoid duplication of services provided by other agencies and to respond to needs not currently addressed in the community.

Social Services

Social Services assists in work programs including adoption, adult services/adult protective services, child protective services, day care services for children, foster care, court services and employment services. The department focuses, in the least intrusive manner, on services that individuals and families cannot provide for themselves.

SOCIAL SERVICES •

Base Revenue and Expenditure Reconciliation Adjustments – The base budget revenue and

expenditures accounts have been adjusted based on the reconciliation of state and federal funding for FY 22. Each year, following the confirmation of funding available from sources other than County dollars, the base budget for the Department of Social Services is adjusted within the fiscal year, and this adjustment becomes the base budget for the next fiscal year. The FY 22 reconciled County Budget for this Division totaled $7,152,734; $5,933,809 in state and federal dollars and $1,218,925 in County dollars. Based on the reconciliation for FY 22, a total of $645,095 is added to the base revenue budget for FY 23 (which removes $1,255 in one-time grant fund revenue in the FY 22 reconciliation) and $399,965 is added to base expenditures specifically for public assistance programs. As part of the state’s FY 22 approved budget, 2 additional FTEs were added for Child Welfare Services. As part of the FY 22 reconciliation, one Human Services assistant position (1 FTE) was abolished for better operational efficiency. These changes resulted in one additional base FTE for FY 23.

Addenda & Reductions Discussion Addenda consist of dollars over and above the base budget target for operating and capital outlay expenses. Approved addenda items are often funding provided for new initiatives or expanded services but may also include normal cost increases. Addenda reductions may reflect reduced revenue and/or expense needed to equalize revenue shortfalls.

$7,584 is Added to Reclassify Two Full-time Positions – In order to maximize staff efficiency and effectiveness, two clerical positions are being reclassified. This reclassification will allow the agency to have the flexibility to realign staff responsibilities to maximize administrative functions and staff output.

About

This Division consists of all outside agencies that are funded by County General Fund dollars. Agencies that receive funding are divided among five categories: Human Service Agencies, Public Safety Agencies, Education/Cultural Agencies, Environmental Agencies, and Economic Development Agencies.

Human Service Agencies •

$255,942 is included for the New River Valley Detention Home (mandated), which is level funding – The NRVDH’s request for FY 23 is $236,773, which is a decrease of $19,169 from the FY

22 budget. In the FY 10 request, the formula for determining operating contributions was changed to allocate costs among participant jurisdictions on the basis of days used, averaged over a three-year period. Under the revised formula, Montgomery County’s billed usage for the facility for FY 23 is $236,773 or 54.7% of the total funding. The facility is over 30 years old and requires upgrades, maintenance, and newer equipment for licensure compliance. Due to the need to address these capital issues, the County is providing $236,773 for operations based on a three-year average usage and is setting aside $19,169 in a special reserve to address future facility upgrades. By the end of FY 23, $927,956 will have accumulated in the reserve. Locality

GENERAL GOVERNMENT DEBT SERVICES

About

General Government Debt Service division includes principal, interest and administrative fees on long-term outstanding debt. Debt service accounts are required for the issuance of the bonds to fund new county buildings and schools, building improvements and renovations and other capital improvements.

County Debt Service

This includes principal, interest and administrative fees for all County long-term outstanding debt.

School Debt Service

School Debt Service includes principal, interest and administrative fees for all school long-term outstanding debt.

Base Budget Discussion

The base budget is the estimated minimum cost for providing continued services/operations for each division/ department. Debt service has been funded from various sources: monies from the School Operating fund, courthouse maintenance fees, revenue from the New River Valley Emergency Communications Regional Authority lease, and the General Fund. The debt service budget includes funds for principal, interest and debt administration costs, as well as, savings retained from decreases in prior year debt service. Retaining these one-time monies in the base budget sets them aside to accomplish two objectives: •

Fund future capital projects, and

Provide capacity to offset future non-recurring peaks in debt service costs.

Reallocation of Base Debt Service Resources – The base budget includes funds needed to cover the costs

for both County and School debt. Generally, debt issuances are structured to balance total debt service costs from year to year; however, the individual components of debt service often change. Total funds for debt service do not change for FY 23. The reallocation of existing debt in the base budget consists of the following:

Decrease in Principal Payments

($1,998,215)

Decrease in interest Payments

($632,536)

Increase in Reserve Funds

$2,630,751

Net Change in the Debt Service Fund

$

0

Other adjustments include realigning the base allocation to correctly distribute debt service between the County and Schools. School debt service had a one-year increase in FY 22 requiring additional funding, which was off-set by County debt service reserve capacity. Rather than increase total debt service for one year, funds were shifted from the County to the Schools. These funds are realigned in the FY 23 budget.

Addenda & Reductions Discussion

Addenda consist of dollars over and above the base budget target for operating and capital outlay expenses. Approved addenda items are often funding provided for new initiatives or expanded services but may also include GENERAL GOVERNMENT DEBT SERVICES : 281


GENERAL GOVERNMENT DEBT SERVICES include normal cost increases. Addenda reductions may reflect reduced revenue and/or expense needed to equalize revenue shortfalls.
