As a reminder, the budget includes:
- General fund budget of $13.51 million, a 5.6% increase from last year
- Stable tax rate of $.29 per $100 valuation
- No stormwater or solid waste fee increases
- Steps to recover from COVID-19

The Capital Improvement Plan also provides for an opportunity for town leadership to carefully plan ahead for major expenses such as infrastructure needs and equipment purchases. Town Manager Jamie Justice shares “the town budget is a critical policy document that really helps to prioritize and shape the work we’re doing for the community. It’s so beneficial to hear feedback from residents throughout the budget process as well as to receive such clear direction from the elected officials with this final approval.”
