Prince William County’s fiscal 2021 budget has been approved.
The Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) adopted the spending plan at a meeting on Tuesday.
It also passed various taxes, including the real estate tax rate, which is remaining at $1.125 per $100 of value.
Officials are raising the computer and peripherals tax rate for trades, businesses and data centers from $1.25 per $100 to $1.35.
Motor vehicle license taxes will increase, as well.
The license fees are going up from $24 to $33 for cars and trucks and from $12 to $20 for motorcycles.
Totaling an estimated $1.29 billion, the budget sets aside about $625.3 million for Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS), according to a release from Prince William County.
Nearly $4 million was added for various resources — such as homeless services and child and adult protective services — that are being used throughout the Coronavirus outbreak.
Officials also added behavioral health response resources, including a co-responder program, early intervention programs, and an intellectual disabilities program.
