Warrenton this year operates with $34.2-million budget, the largest in town history.
The Warrenton Town Council will begin discussing the fiscal 2020 budget during a retreat Friday, March 1.

The public meeting will start at 10 a.m. at the PATH Foundation building, 321 Walker Drive, Suite 301. Because of weather, town officials postponed the session, originally scheduled Thursday, Feb. 21.

Interim Town Manager Brandie Schaeffer will review Warrenton’s finances and give a fiscal 2020 budget preview to the seven-member council, mayor and department heads. The council also will set a budget meeting schedule.

The town council this spring will consider funding requests before voting on the new budget and setting tax rates for the next fiscal year that starts July 1. 

This year’s budget, the largest in Warrenton’s history, totals $34.2 million.

To balance the 2019 budget, the council raised several fees, including the cigarette tax, Warrenton Aquatic and Recreation Center prices and water/sewer rates.

During last year’s budget process, the town added four staff positions and budgeted $12.4 million for deferred water and sewer system improvements, funded mostly with long-term debt.
