Following last week’s landslide passage of a Mt. Daniel School bond referendum in the City of Falls Church, the City’s chief financial officer Richard LaCondre assured the City Council at its meeting Monday night that with the City’s current low debt burden, handling the issuance of bonds for the expansion of Mt. Daniel, plus the renovation of City Hall and the expansion of the Mary Riley Styles Public Library, along with funds for storm water abatement and other lesser needs in the City can be met comfortably by taking on added debt in the next few years.

While the proverbial “elephant in the room,” the $100 million price tag for a new high school was not discussed, it was Vice Mayor David Snyder’s concern for the ability of the City to finance the current array of improvements and expansions in the next four years that LaCondre spoke to.
