CARRBORO – The Board of Aldermen will approve their budget Tuesday, and they’ll take a look at how transit tax money might be put to use in Carrboro.

Under next year’s budget the municipal tax rate will stay the same for the fifth year in a row, and town employees will receive a 1.9 percent cost-of-living pay raise.

Aldermen will also consider transit system improvement projects to submit to Triangle Transit for possible funding from the ½ cent sales tax that went into effect earlier this year. Improvements could range from bus shelter construction to sidewalk expansion along major roads.

The board meets at 7:30 Tuesday in Carrboro Town Hall.
