“The board took a look at the budget, deliberated and we had a public hearing before agreeing to it,” Snow Hill Town Manager John Bauer said. “It’s a tight budget, but we were able to do it without a tax increase. We did use some of our fund balance and surplus equipment projections, but we believe this will be of benefit to the citizens.”

The tax rate of $0.34 per $100 valuation has been the same in Snow Hill since 2015.

There will be a Greene County budget meeting June 26 at 9 a.m. to finalize the county budget, and it will be held in the Tech Center, located at 402 SE Second St. in Snow Hill.
