Board to hear from Havelock residents on proposed tax increase

He said that in the past, the General Assembly used to work with the cities and counties.

“They’ve always tried to hold us harmless, tried to stay and work with us,” Walsh said. “This is the first time in my recollection that they have just totally ignored everything that we’ve said and done it their way. I’ve never seen anyone act and do like this group has done lately.”

Commissioners are expected to listen to residents during the public hearing and could schedule another work session to complete the budget. The board is expected to approve the final budget at its June 23 meeting.

“Next year’s going to be worse,” Walsh said, “but we’ve still got to go back and figure out how to make this year work.”
