Final Reading of Fiscal Budget on Friday in Jonesborough
The Jonesborough Board of Mayor and Alderman has scheduled a second and final reading for the next fiscal budget on Friday. The 5-million 607 thousand dollar budget was unanimously approved on first reading and includes a 5 percent pay increase for all town employees with no increase in property taxes or service fees and rates. They will also discuss the addition of another patrol officer. The additional position will offer the opportunity for all patrol officers to participate in a rotation that gets them experience in the investigative division. This plan should help Major Matt Rice who is the departmentís only investigator dealing with the 120 criminal investigations that are underway. They will also consider a request from the Senior Center to promote a part timer to full-time as membership at the center has increased by 40 percent. The town hopes Washington County will begin to support the new senior center which is expected to begin construction later this year. (bg)
