ORANGE COUNTY- County commissioners will hash out the final details on next year’s budget when the board meets Thursday.
The budget won’t be formally adopted until next week, but tonight commissioners will settle on a countywide property tax rate for Fiscal Year 2013-2014 and decide the funding levels for the Orange County and Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools districts.
The board will also sign off on a five-year capital spending plan and set the tax rates for the county’s 12 fire districts.
Tuesday’s budget work session ran long, so tonight’s meeting starts an hour earlier than usual to allow the board to finish departmental budget reviews.
The meeting begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Southern Human Services Center on Homestead Road.
