Lincoln County Courthouse

The Lincoln County Commission is proposing a $1.10 property tax increase and has set a public hearing for June 6 to let the public voice their opinions. The public hearing is set for 6 p.m. in the auditorium at Lincoln Central Academy.

During the budget committee report at last Tuesday’s County Commission meeting, Ricky Bryant, chairman pro tempore and a member of the budget committee, said a motion by Commissioner Anthony Taylor and seconded by Commissioner David Sanders to approve the fiscal year 2023-24 draft budget passed by a 7- 0 vote with one commissioner absent. Bryant said the draft budget will be published in the newspaper and considered in the June 6 public hearing.
