Asheville Fiscal Year Budget On The Table

Jun 9, 2014

Asheville City Council is closing in on adoption of the  proposed 2014-2015 fiscal  year budget.  The 147.5 million dollar spending plan includes a 3% pay raise for many city workers, funds for Sunday bus service, a bump in some fees, but no increase in city property taxes.  While the focus is on this years' spending plan, a recent decision by the North Carolina General Assembly has city officials  casting a weary eye on crafting the 2015-2016 fiscal year budget.  David Hurand has our story.
