Local officials continue to work on budgets for 2013-14 while waiting for a certified tax rate following the completion of a six-year reappraisal cycle. The Dickson County Commission’s Budget and Budget Advisory committees will meet at 6 pm Monday for their second session on the county’s budget. Mayor Bob Rial presented drafts of the general fund, solid waste management, economic and community development, highways and bridges, drug control and debt service budgets that do not require any additional revenue from property taxes. The Dickson City Council will get its first look at Mayor Don Weiss’ proposed budget at Monday night’s Finance and Management Committee meeting at 7 pm. The Dickson County School Board has scheduled a work session for Tuesday night to continue its review of a budget proposal from Director Dr. Danny Weeks. The draft presented last month was still $3.4 million short in revenue. The White Bluff Town Council approved a $2.2 million general fund budget on the first of two required readings earlier this month. It will not require any additional property tax revenue. The Slayden Town Council approved a $25,000 budget on a first vote last month. Slayden does not have a local property tax. The Vanleer Board of Aldermen, Burns Board of Commissioners and Charlotte Town Council have yet to review budget proposals. The county and municipalities are still waiting for a certified tax rate from the state, which will be the rate necessary to generate the same total dollars in property tax revenue as the current year based on the changes in overall property values in the reappraisal program. Reappraisal notices are scheduled to go into the mail to property owners across the county today. The Dickson County Board of Equalization will meet June 10-21 to hear appeals of assessments. To schedule an appeal appointment, contact the Assessor of Property’s office at 789-7015.
