Yancey County Set to Adopt Budget Next Week
Yancey County Commissioners will adopt a budget next week following a 6 p.m. public hearing in the courtroom on Monday, June 9. Officials say that the new budget fully funds all critical services for the county and does not raise property taxes, keeping the tax rate at 50 cents per $100 in property valuation. The budget will come in nearly $600,000 less than last year’s budget. Copies of the budget are available for public inspection in the county manger’s office.
