Kilmarnock Budget To Be Adopted This Evening

Tonight in Kilmarnock, anticipation is high as town officials prepare to adopt a hefty $17.5 million budget for the upcoming fiscal year. This marks a significant increase of over $5.4 million from the current budget, with a major focus on wastewater treatment upgrades funded by USDA loans and grants. Residents can expect a $15 hike in sewer fees and a reduction in real estate tax rates, reflecting a 36% rise in property values. The budget also includes provisions for new hires and capital projects like sidewalks and a bike park. Town council will finalize the budget at a special meeting at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
