On June 18th we passed the FY 2012-2013 budget. I want to touch on the highlights of the budget and make a few comments in areas that might need some clarification. To see the approved budget and a more complete summary, please visit the county website. www.chathamnc.org
When the majority took office we pledged to make spending cuts, focus our spending on core functions, and raise taxes only as a last resort. We knew that by prioritizing we could increase spending in core areas without additional tax burden to the citizens. I'm pleased to say that the county staff has been able to once again prepare a budget that allows us to maintain our property tax rate at 62.19 cents.
Quick history of debt in NC and Chatham County:
The decades long practice of seeking voter approval on major debt as prescribed by the NC constitution has been replaced over recent years with a method that was intended to be used only for time sensitive or emergency situations.
