At the sessions, the Board of Commissioners will have the opportunity to discuss details of the proposed budget with management and outside agencies funded within the County budget. The Board will hold a public hearing on the proposed budget and consider its adoption at its June 17 meeting in the meeting chambers of the Government Center.

At the May 20 Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners meeting, County Manager Mike Downs presented the proposed budget for fiscal year 2014. The balanced budget includes a recommended General Fund Budget of $212,940,116. To fund this budget as proposed will require the Board of Commissioners to adopt an ad valorem tax rate of 70 cents, the same rate as the amended FY13 budget. Due to economic growth, the County predicts maintaining the same tax rate will yield a 2.55 percent increase in revenues for FY14.
