The Flat Rock village council will have a council workshop on the upcoming budget for fiscal year 2019/2020 immediately following the May 9 council meeting (the council meeting begins at 9:30 a.m.). This workshop is open for the public to attend.
The fiscal year for the State of North Carolina runs from July 1 to June 30. A draft of the 2019/2020 fiscal budget must be available for the public to review by June 1.
A public hearing on the budget is also required and is scheduled for the June 13 village council meeting. The council is planning to vote on the budget at that meeting after the public hearing. The village must have a budget approved by June 30 for the July 1 start of the new fiscal year.
