County Budgets

Operating Budget

The County operates under a balanced budget each fiscal year, from July 1 through June 30, per North Carolina statute. The County's Operating Budget estimates the total value of resources required to perform county operations. The Operating Budget also sets tax rates and fee schedules for the fiscal year.

In May, the County Manager presents a recommended budget to the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). The BOCC conducts public hearings and work sessions, and may amend the Recommended Budget, before approving a final budget in June.

FY 2020-2021 (July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021)

FY 2019-2020 (July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020)

Capital Investment Plan (CIP) Budget

The County’s Capital Investment Plan (CIP) serves as a annual planning tool to forecast long-range future capital needs for both school districts and the County. This plan examines infrastructure and equipment needs, provides a planning schedule and identifies available financing options for the next five years. The first year budget of the CIP is adopted in June, in conjunction with the County's operating budget, linking the County’s strategic plans and its annual budget.  

Next Year Budget Amendments
