Aldermen Take Their Turn At Budget Talks Tuesday
CARRBORO – Carrboro Aldermen will hash out the details of next year’s budget when the board meets Tuesday.
Board members will consider a variety of plans that could add or subtract from the bottom line, including a proposal to spend $48,000 on a housing stipend for some low-income town employees.
Other proposals call for expanding the Carrboro Music Festival and Carrboro Film Festival to two-day events, or spending $30,000 to assess the town’s options for recycling and solid waste disposal.
The board will also discuss reducing minimum parking requirements for new developments, or requiring that parking spaces be sold or rented separately. Supporters of “unbundling” say this could lower the cost of housing and encourage more residents to use public transportation.
The board meets Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in CarrboroTown Hall.
