With the fiscal year ending in less than two weeks, the county and local municipalities are getting down to crunch time in completing new budgets. The Dickson County Commission’s Budget and Budget Advisory committees meet again at 6:00 tonight with the main focus expected to be the proposed school system budget. The Dickson City Council holds a called session at 7:00 tonight for a second and final vote on its $15 million budget. The Burns Board of Commissioners has a called session at 7:00 Tuesday for a first look at a proposed budget. The Charlotte Town Council’s second and final vote on a $485,000 budget is set for 7 pm June 25. Vanleer will begin its budget review next month following the completion of the current budget. White Bluff has already passed its $2.2 million budget on two required readings. The county and municipalities are still waiting on a certified tax rate from the state following a countywide reappraisal program before voting on an official property tax for the coming fiscal year. Charlotte and White Bluff officials have said a preliminary estimate shows their tax rates increasing about a penny due to an overall decrease in residential property values. Director of Schools Dr. Danny Weeks presented a $61 million budget proposal two weeks ago that does not include the annual $1 million payment the school system has been making toward the county’s debt. The school system also has not yet presented its request for an additional $750,000 for school safety improvements recommended by a special committee. The budget committees meet at 6 pm prior to the county commission’s regular session at 7:00. The commission agenda does not include a budget vote. Mayor Bob Rial at first said the commission could meet next Monday and then each night until it completes a budget. More recently, he said the commission likely will hold a public hearing and special session to approve a budget on Monday, July 1, prior to its regular work session.
