One of the major responsibilities of every municipal governing board is to adopt the annual municipal budget, which determines what services will be provided and at what level.
In the Town’s case, Town Council must set the municipal property tax rate when it adopts is annual budget. Town residents must pay Town property taxes as well as Buncombe County property taxes. By law, all North Carolina budgets must be balanced, and the Local Government Commission provides oversight over municipal finances.
