Wake Board of Commissioners Approves 2014 Budget
The Wake County Board of Commissioners approved the County's fiscal year 2014 (FY 2014) budget during its regularly scheduled meeting Monday, June 17, 2013.
The $982,800,000 budget holds the property tax rate at 53.4 cents for the fifth year in a row, and focuses on priorities and addressing the greatest needs.
"The 2014 budget continues Wake County's practice of allocating to the highest priority areas: public safety, education, and human services and public health," said Wake County Board of Commissioners Chairman Joe Bryan. "The budget also funds development-related services, which have shown recent growth, such as the Register of Deeds, building inspections and the Revenue Department. We are extremely pleased that we are able to meet these needs without a property tax increase."
The total Wake County FY 2014 budget is $44.3 million, or about 4.7 percent, more than the FY 2013 adopted budget. The budget includes:

​Budget Category Total​ Increase​
Education​ ​$343.7 million ​$9.2 million
​Public Safety ​$115.5 million ​$9.1 million
​Human Services and Public Health ​$190 million ​$0.4 million
​Debt and Capital ​$232.4 million ​$17.4 million
​Other County Activities ​$101.2 million ​$8.2 million
