Iredell County property taxes would remain the same under the budget proposal shared with commissioners this week.
The $205 million plan is a nearly 5 percent increase from last year and uses about $1.2 million from savings. Education represents nearly half the budget and is receiving a more than 2.5 percent increase.
Nearly $500,000 is included for facility improvements and $3.3 million would fund the capital improvement plan – that does not cover the jail expansion which has its own fund.
All is subject to changes and final approval by commissioners. Click HERE to view the Acting County Manager’s budget message for additional information.
