Town Council Approves Budget and Reduces Property Tax Rate
The budget fully funds the requests of our public safety departments, town administration, public works, municipal court and provides for other town needs and responsibilities. The council adopted a lower tax rate of $0.229210. I applaud our councilmembers for their stewardship and fiscal responsibility.
Residents will find the approved fiscal year budget and tax rate information on the town website.
Thank you to our residents for your assistance during the budget process.
I especially want to thank our town council members, town treasurer, department heads, staff, and our partners for their commitment and dedication during the year.
Our town is thankful for the hard work of Mayor Pro Tem Joe Dent, Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Billie Garrett and Councilmembers Anita Nelson, Scott Whisenhunt and Von Beougher. I want everyone to know that these five outstanding councilmembers work daily for the residents and for our town. They have my appreciation and full support.
