City Budget Press Release
May 15, 2017
The City of Hamlet is on track to vote on the 2017-2018 budget during June’s City Council Meeting. Hamlet City Manager, Jonathan Blanton presented his budget message to Hamlet City Council at last Tuesday’s regularly scheduled meeting. The focus of Blanton’s message was on safety, service, and solidarity. To promote safety, the recommended budget provides for two capital outlay expenditures for the Hamlet Police Department to finance a new Dodge Charger and Ford Explorer. The recommended budget also provides two capital outlay expenditures for the Hamlet Fire Department to finance a new Ford Explorer and purchase additional air packs. To promote service, the recommended budget provides for a new garbage truck, backhoe, tractor, utility mule vehicle, and water sampling stations. Lastly, to promote solidarity, the recommended budget provides for the financing of an F-550 for the Hamlet Rescue Squad, contributions to numerous civic organizations, and a 2% pay increase for all City employees. Blanton says that the City is, “confident that we will be able to meet all budgetary needs for the fiscal year and the Recommended Budget reflects a 17.8% decrease from the prior year’s fund balance, should revenues not be adequate to cover the City’s operational costs.” The recommended budget does not raise any fees or taxes for the 2017-2018 fiscal year, except water deposits for first time water customers. The recommended budget proposes that water deposits be raised for $45 to $75 for first time customers. Blanton also says that the recommended budget, “reflects an economically conservative path forward as the City strives to provide incomparable services to our citizens.” The recommended budget is available for public review at Hamlet City Hall during normal business hours. A public hearing on the budget is scheduled for June 13 at 7:00 pm.
