The budget for the 2021-2022 fiscal year will be presented to the county commission for review on Monday, June 21, at a special-called meeting. The committee will have an opportunity to ask questions and they will also have a week to look over the budget before they vote on it the following Monday, June 28. Mayor Mike Creasy stated that he feels good about this year’s budget. First, there is no increase in the tax rate. Also, the budget gives a three percent raise to county employees and there is also an approximately two percent state-mandated raise for elected officials. For a complete copy of the budget, please see this week’s edition of The News Leader.
