The proposed $2.5 million fiscal year 2018 Hamilton budget will be the subject of a May 8 public hearing.
The council is eyeing a budget with no changes to the current tax rates, including the town’s 28-cent real estate tax rate. The town expects to collect $217,750 in real estate taxes next year. On the utility side, which makes up the majority of the town’s finances, water user fees are expected to bring in $275,800 and sewer use fees are projected at $310,800.
The public hearing will begin at 7 p.m. in the Town Office, 53 E. Colonial Highway.
