The Prince William Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a budget for fiscal 2015 that raises average real estate tax bills by about 4.5 percent.
The budget funds two new libraries -- for Gainesville and Montclair -- and adds 25 new police officers and 11 new firefighters.
The budget also funds a remaining $13.7 million in unused park bonds from the 2006 bond referendum that will be used to install artificial turf at another four middle schools, including Benton, Woodbridge, Godwin and Graham Park. That's in addition to a December decision to install turf at Gainesville and Saunders middle schools.
Prince William County schools, however, will receive $2.8 million less than they were expecting from the county next year.
