The Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen gave final approval this morning to a balanced $21.3 million budget for fiscal year 2014 during a brief called meeting.

The state-certified tax rate also received approval on second reading.

A fiscal year 2014 budget for the Municipal Solid Waste Fund was also approved.

The Town's 2014 budget was passed on first reading during a called meeting on Monday afternoon.

Final passage this morning ensures the new budget is completed by the target date of June 30, meaning Greeneville can begin operating under it on the first day of fiscal year 2014 -- July 1.

The budget includes $5.5 million in funding for the Greeneville City School System, and provides half the cost of the purchase of three buses needed for the upcoming school year.

Public Safety -- which includes budgets for the Greeneville Police and Fire Departments -- will receive $5,471,265 in funding.

The Department of Public Works will receive $2,445,917.

Health, welfare, culture, and recreation expenditures, including the Parks and Recreation Department, total $1,874,667.

A total of $46,996 will be added to the fund balance as well.

The fiscal year 2014 budget passed unanimously without discussion.

After the vote, Mayor W.T. Daniels called the budget development process "very, very in depth."

He also took a moment to publicly thank City Administrator Todd Smith and Town Recorder Carol Susong for their work during the process.


The board also approved the Municipal Solid Waste Fund for fiscal year 2014.

"It is a similar budget to what you saw last year," Smith said.

The budget includes $312,701 in revenue from an appropriation from the Town.

Additional revenue comes from sources such as collection fees and sales of garbage totes and containers.

Total revenue in the budget is $2,427,201.

Total expenditures were listed as $1,894,277.26


A public hearing and second and final reading to fix the certified tax rate, as set by the state were held.

The certified rate is $2.0453 per $100 of taxable real and personal property.

A motion to fix the tax rate passed unanimously without discussion.
