The Charlotte Town Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing and final vote on the 2013-14 budget Tuesday. The council meets at 7 pm at Town Hall on the Courthouse Square. The $485,000 budget does not call for any additional revenue from property taxes. However, the preliminary results of the countywide reappraisal program are expected to result in just over a one-cent adjustment in the property tax rate, from 17 cents to 18.16 cents per $100 of assessed value. The proposed budget projects a reduction in salaries of town employees, some of that due to the retirement of Recorder Bonnie Duke after 20 years of service. The only major new expense in the budget is $10,000 to begin the proposed renovation of the Old Jailer’s House on the historic square. The town has discussed converting the empty house attached to the former jail into a headquarters for tourism and possibly a satellite location for the Clement Railroad Hotel Museum. The money is being earmarked for repairs to the house’s front porch as a place to start. The council is scheduled for a second vote on the budget tonight but will not be able to set the tax rate until it receives the certified rate from the state.
