Greenville residents could see their property taxes reduced by a penny per $100 valuation according to the 2015-16 proposed budget, but that could be offset by increases required for a potential bond referendum.

Residents also will see increases in sanitation and stormwater fees.


The penny property tax increase was added to the 2014-15 budget after the N.C. General Assembly capped a city revenue source — privilege license taxes paid by businesses.

How many grants

has the Ferguson group gotten for Greenville? The county canceled their contract with them years ago.

another darn " earmark" wasteful consultant from out of town

"A nearly $75,000 contract for a Washington, D.C.-based lobbying firm." We have a bunch of idiots running this city!!!!

Ths is such a scam as

Would be excited about a penny per $100 on property taxes, yet now you are stating for Residents also will see increases in sanitation and storm water fees. Why? You have had additional for storm water for years and the city has done nothing to improve the drains and storm water run off. Now for sanitation, explain why for private homes, and the multi family homes where a truck drives up and dumps, that you need more money? A Total joke and scam on the citizens of Greenville. So if I or someone refuses to pay your pathetic storm and sanitation, what are the consequences? Hmmm, I will still have my utilities (which you piggy backed on the bill), and well, I could care less if you go after an individual at multi family where you do piss poor job as it is, and would say same for private homeowners who roll the carts to the street to be picked up by you ridiculous expensive trucks on the handle so you don’t have to pay individuals as in the past. God help us as you think we are idiots in this city.
