Wake County Seeks Feedback on Fiscal Year 2017 Recommended Budget

The Wake County Board of Commissioners held two public hearings on Monday, June 6, to gather feedback from residents on the $1.2 billion recommended budget for Fiscal Year 2017, which runs from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. Anyone who was unable to attend one of the public hearings can submit their comments here.

The board will also hold a work session dedicated to the recommended budget on June 13 at 2 p.m. in room 2800 of the Wake County Justice Center. On June 20, the commissioners will consider adopting the FY2017 budget during their normally scheduled 2 p.m. business meeting, which will be held in the boardroom of the Justice Center.

Wake County Manager Jim Hartmann presented his recommended budget for FY2017 to the board on May 16. It proposes funding investments in several focus areas, which include county commitments, care and custody of others, public safety, community health, great government, quality of life, partner agencies and education. To help fund these investments, a 1.35-cent property tax increase was proposed, which would raise the property tax on a home valued at $268,600 by $36 annually.
