The Town Manager Releases Coming Year Recommended Budget
This budget illustrates a $0.54 tax rate, which is slightly above the revenue neutral rate of $0.53, and continues moving forward with existing projects and actively plans new projects while maintaining a solid financial position. Highlights of this year’s budget include funds to link the Purple Martin Greenway to Kiwanis Park, funding for a refresh of Crestview Park, housing investments, delivery of the new Squad 26 fire truck & continues to invest in our staff. It is also important to note that this budget does not include the use of fund balance.
The proposed budget is available for public review at this link or in person at either Town Hall or the Norris Library. A public hearing will be held on June 5, 2019, however citizens are encouraged to review the proposed budget and submit comments to the Town Manager. The Town of Rutherfordton provides service forged at the highest standard from all departments and that quality standard is rooted in the financial stability of our budget process.
