Union County Board of County Commissions

Adopt FY 2020 Budget

MONROE, NC (June 19, 2019) – The Union County Board of County Commissioners on June 17, 2019 adopted the FY 2020 Operating Budget of $443.95 million and FY 2020 Capital Funding of $364.16 million. “We are confident this budget is fiscally responsible and invests in our core services, enabling us to continue serving our residents while not raising taxes,” praised Chairman Richard Helms.

The adopted FY 2020 Operating and Capital Budget includes a countywide tax rate of 73.09 cents per $100 of assessed value, made up of 21.63 cents for general County operations, 44.50 cents for schools, 2.33 for countywide EMS, 1.33 cents for countywide Fire and 3.30 cents for voter approved debt.

This is the first budget recommended by County Manager Mark Watson. Watson’s recommendation was focused on maintaining fiscal discipline, investing in the County’s core services and implementing a strategic framework for internal business processes.

The adopted budget provides $123.9 million for Union County Public Schools’ current expense funding, pay-go capital funding, debt services and other related costs.

The Manager’s Proposed FY 2020 Operating and Capital Budget can be found at http://www.co.union.nc.us/departments/budget-management.
