CARRBORO – Carrboro Aldermen will receive the town manager’s budget recommendations when the board meets Tuesday.
The proposed budget does not call for any property tax rate increase, marking the fifth year in a row that Carrboro has maintained the same tax rate. The board will schedule a public hearing on the budget for May 21.
The board will also consider making a loan of $50,000 to Cameron’s, a retail specialty shop relocating from University Mall to the new 300 East Main development. The money will come from the town’s revolving loan fund.
Last but not least the board will review possible sites for the Southern Branch library. New locations under consideration include 300 East Main, the town-owned parking lot on South Greensboro, the Butler development on Brewer Lane, and the corner of North Greensboro and Weaver Street.
That last site is owned by CVS, where developers are in the midst of a long and controversial fight to build a 24 hour pharmacy. Town staff say its possible the town and county could plan the library in conjunction with CVS.
The aldermen meet at 7:30 p.m. in CarrboroTown Hall.
