Century Signs Off On Budget, Property Tax Increase

September 20, 2016

The Century Town Council gave final approval Monday night to a property tax increase along with a $3.75 million budget.

The town council gave preliminary approval to raising the ad valorem millage rate from 0.9005 to 0.9732 for the next fiscal year. The levied millage rate is a 9.84% increase over the rolled back rate.

The increase will enable the town to meet their proposed $3.75 million budget for fiscal year beginning October 1. The upcoming year’s budget is down from the current year’s $5.1 million budget, which included about $2.2 million in grant income and expenditures.
