NEWPORT-Members of the Cocke County Legislative Body's
Finance Committee tentatively completed work on the 2013-14 budget Tuesday
without the need for a property tax increase.
The property tax rate will remain at $2.40 per $100 of
assessed value and the county will have $262,118 in its unassigned fund balance
for the General Fund.
Committee members discussed the possibility of providing
raises for county employees but decided to take a "wait and see"
approach and see what funds are available later in the budget year, possibly
providing bonuses if funds allow.
Committee Norman Smith initiated the discussion.
