Council Approves Historic Budget
Town Council marked Clayton's historic transition from a small to medium-sized town Monday night, with the 4-1 passage of the 2019 Fiscal Year Budget, which will leverage $70 million dollars of investments in streets, public safety, and parks and recreation over the next decade. The budget, which will hold the Clayton tax rate at $0.58, coincides with the state-mandated Johnston County revaluation year, which brought up property values throughout the area and will result in higher annual tax bills. This budget is expected to impact the average Clayton resident by adding about $28.66 more a month in increased utility and Clayton property taxes. All Council members referred to the budget as the most difficult of their time in public service.
