Anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of Loudoun County government programs and services is encouraged to read Loudoun County’s Fiscal Year 2024 (FY 2024) Program Review, which is online at loudoun.gov/ProgramReview.
The FY 2024 Program Review is a comprehensive inventory and description of Loudoun County government programs, activities and services with supporting performance measures. It serves as a companion to the county government’s annual budget document. While the adopted budget document features a streamlined and concise format that focuses on key budgetary issues and themes for the given fiscal year, the program review describes county services in greater detail.
The program review is updated and published every four years in conjunction with the term of the Board of Supervisors. It is intended to educate and inform the Board and the public about Loudoun County government operations and the levels at which services are delivered to the community.
In addition to being a point-in-time inventory, this iteration of the program review describes longer-term plans to meet the needs of an evolving community, including the projected stabilization of the county’s population growth and shift in demographics.
Also in the program review, the county government uses the concept of service levels to describe what it is doing and how well it is doing it. “Service levels are a description of the commitment the county government makes to the community to deliver services and programs at a certain level and a certain quality,” said Loudoun County Administrator Tim Hemstreet. “Something new for the FY 2024 Program Review is that the long-term planning concept of recommended service level is defined for each government program and service. Recommended service levels are the desired service levels the county government will provide to the community that are responsible, sustainable and equitable and will be used in future budget planning.”
