People who live in Fluvanna County might soon be able to donate money to the county departments that are most important to them.
The Board of Supervisors is discussing the possibility of allowing people to make tax-deductible voluntary contributions to one of six categories: schools, parks and recreation, social services, the sheriff's department, the library, and the county general fund.
"I think it's a great opportunity for Fluvanna citizens to donate to a cause of their choice outside of their normal taxes that they pay. If you're passionate about a certain program, then you could put some money towards that program but that's truly an individual choice and we're going to try to provide as many options as the board sees fit to put out there for individuals," said Fluvanna County administrator Steve Nichols.
The county administrator proposed a $10 minimum to cover processing cost. He will make a final recommendation to the board in August.
Gov. McDonnell announced that his FY 2015/2016 budget will include $183.1 million over the biennium in new support of VA's colleges and universities.Full Story
