WASHINGTON (AP) - Fairfax County is seeking public input as it prepares to hire a new county executive to replace retiring Anthony Griffin.
Supervisor John Cook is hosting a town hall meeting Monday night in Burke that will include a panel discussion and question-and-answer session. The county is also taking public comment through an online survey that will be available through Jan. 16.
The county board will soon begin a national search for a new county executive, who oversees day-to-day operations and prepares the county's annual budget of more than $3 billion.
Griffin is retiring in April after 12 years as the county's appointed executive. The county of more than 1 million residents routinely ranks as one of the wealthiest in the nation.
