Post Date:03/08/2018 5:36 PM

The Town of Nashville Town Council held its Annual Budget Retreat on February 23, 2018 in the Town Hall Conference Room at 9:00am. The retreat agenda included:

  1. Town Manager's Message
  2. External Reports and Presentations
  3. Fleet Synopsis
  4. Financial Synopsis
  5. Personnel Synopsis
  6. Personnel Needs
  7. Policy Considerations
  8. Blighted Property Plan
  9. Street and Sidewalk Plan
  10. Stormwater Utility Plan 
  11. Capital Budget Requests
  12. Property Tax Considerations

Highlights of the annual retreat included the presentations of the audit for fiscal year 2016-2017 by Dale Place and of ongoing economic development efforts from the Carolinas Gateway Partnership by Norris Tolson, respectively.

Proposals  discussed for future consideration during the budget process are cost of living adjustments and certification pay for employees as well as the addition of a Maintenance Worker position in the Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department.

A motion was approved by Town Council to increase property tax rates effective with the adoption of the 2018-2019 Annual Operating Budget from $0.56 per $100.00 to $0.63 per $100.00.

In addition, a consideration was unanimously approved for the Town of Nashville to participate in a fuel card program that will allow town vehicles to receive discounts on the purchase of fuel for public use. Participation in the program  will allow for better internal controls and ultimately reduces operating costs for fuel in the future.

The first work session for the 2018-2019 Annual Operating Budget will be held on April 26, 2018 at the Town Council Chambers at 114 West Church Street beginning at 9:00am. Topics at the work session are anticipated to include the presentation of the annual revenue manual and review of departmental expenditure requests submitted to the Town Manager.
