Greenville city budget, tax rate approved

Sep 28, 2011

GREENVILLE - An unexpected windfall from GEUS led to debate Tuesday among council on how to use the extra money.

They would eventually vote 5-2 to keep the same tax rate of 69.9 cents per $100 valuation that was originally proposed.

Some council members wanted to use the extra funds to lower the tax rate. But the majority of council decided to use the remaining $450,000 in additional franchise fee payments made by GUES toward street repairs.
