On Tuesday, May 21, the Board of Aldermen will hold a public hearing on the town manager’s recommended budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
Some highlights include:
- no increase in the property tax rate (for the fifth consecutive year);
- retirement of debt for the Adams Tract, the Century Center, the Martin Luther King Jr Park property, and the Old NC 86 public works property;
- an increase in the human services grant budget; and
- a small cost-of-living increase for town employees.
And don’t forget the purchase of a new front-loader garbage truck!
The proposed budget is available on the town’s website here and from the town clerk.
