Council Continues Work On New City Budget

Council Continues Work On New City Budget

Goldsboro continues working on its new budget.

At Tuesday’s city council work session, Goldsboro Finance Director Catherine Gwynn said there is no property tax increase included in the new budget.

There is a proposed $1 increase in the recycling surcharge per month and a proposed 25% water and sewer rate increase.

Council member Taj Polack wondered if the city could phase in that water and sewer rate increase.

Gwynn went through the positions that could be frozen during the coming fiscal year saving the city about $437,000.

Council member Antonio Williams was among those that wanted to avoid hiring an Assistant Golf Professional at the Goldsboro Municipal Golf Course.

The Goldsboro City Council plans to hold a public hearing on the proposed 2020-2021 Fiscal Year Budget on Monday, June 15.

The city council will need to approve the new $64 million financial plan by the end of June.
