County Finds Funds For Supplements Without Tax Increase

Wayne County appears set to approve its new budget.

As presented Wednesday, by Wayne County Manager Craig Honeycutt, the next year’s financial plan includes a 1% supplement increase for the county’s teachers.

The Wayne County commissioners had asked that the supplements be included in the budget, but they did not want taxes to increase.

So Honeycutt says the county had to find the $800,200 elsewhere, including $98,500 in operational cuts.

The County Manager says the extra funds also came from increased revenue projections.

As currently proposed, the county’s tax rate would remain unchanged at $0.6635 for every $100 in assessed value.

CORRECTION:  The Wayne County Board of Commissioners gave final approval to the 2019-2020 Fiscal Year Budget at it’s special meeting Wednesday.
