Chatham County fire districts’ proposed budgets now available online

The Chatham County Manager’s Office has completed its review of budget requests from the 12 county fire districts and has posted this final component of the proposed FY 2014-15 budget online. As part of the budget process, the Board of Commissioners will approve tax rates for the fire districts. The fire districts’ proposed budgets were delayed this year due to a major statewide change beginning in September 2013 that shifted the collection of county motor vehicle taxes to the NC Division of Motor Vehicles. This change meant that revenue information needed to develop fire district budgets was not available until mid-March.
