Council Holds Public Hearing On Proposed Budget

The City of Goldsboro is just a few weeks away from approving its new budget.

Finance Director Kaye Scott presented the proposed 2018-2019 budget to the Goldsboro City Council Monday.

Scott says the recommended budget does not include an increase in the property tax, garbage, water, or sewer rates.

Goldsboro’s budget includes funding for several community organizations.

Some of those agencies would see their funding from the city decrease this year.

The new city budget proposed a $5,000 cut to the Wayne County Historical Museum, and Museum Director Jennifer Kuykendall asked the council to reconsider during Monday’s public hearing.

Wendy Snow Walker, the Executive Director of the Arts Council of Wayne County, also asked the city council to reconsider a $5,000 cut to her organization.

The city council held another budget session on Tuesday, and some of the cuts have been eliminated.

The Goldsboro City Council will be asked to approve the nearly $61.5 million financial plan at its June 4th meeting.
