Century Approved $3.15 Million Budget 4-1

September 30, 2008

The Town of Century approved a $3.15 million budget Monday afternoon, with one council member voting against it.

“I think that it is not very prudent of us to spend more than we are going to take in,” council President Ann Brooks said, “especially in light of the things that are going on with our economy.”

The balanced $3,154,355 budget does include over $100,000 transferred from a reserve account in order to make it balance.

The budget is just over $191,000 more than last year’s $2.96 million budget.

At Mondays’ final public hearing before approving the budget, just one member of the public spoke.

“If you take it to the people in Century, they will tell you that this budget has gone outrageous,” Leola Robinson told the council, saying that the council spends too much money. “For a little place like Century, I don’t see anything being done.”

The council also voted to keep their property tax millage rate the same at 0.817 mils. That’s equal to $81.17 in tax on a $100,000 piece of property with no exemptions.

The budget takes effect for the next fiscal year, which is October 1, 2008, to September 30, 2009.
