Greenville to hold public hearings on budget, tax rate

Greenville – Public hearings regarding the City of Greenville budget are scheduled for Tuesday. Hearings will take place during the city council's regular session, starting at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building downtown.

City manager Steve Alexander has proposed a $56 million budget, funded by a property tax rate of 71 cents per $100 valuation, down from the current 72 cents. No pay raises are planned for employees, other than those required under the civil service pay plan, which would impact about 20 workers.

The City of Commerce is scheduled to present its budget and tax rate at its September 15 meeting.
