Holden E BY EDDIE SWEATT There is no tax increase and no noticeable difference in this year's budget. Finance Officer Hal Stanley explained at a public hearing on the proposed budget prior to the Holden town board meeting Monday night. Keeping the 25-cents per $100 valuation, the budget calls for raising an estimated $181,800 from ad valorem taxes in the $556,845 budget for the fiscal vear heainnino July 1. Stanley said the work session on the budget was the easiest he and the other commissioner who has served the longest time could remember. He credited Town Administrator Bob Buck with knowing what the commission would and wouldn't do, budget-wise, and drafting the document accordingly. The only question from the public during the hearing was an inquiry about whose identity of the other longtime commissioner to whom Stanley referred. "It's Jim Griffin," he answered. While the audience did not question the budget, commissioner Gloria Barrett raised two questions she said need "to get settled" before passage of the budget. One of her concerns is the more stringent reI ' <-v" SLsriflj WfWR Tn Onon Unl/n > - -w ' *?' ^\.J III IV/IU NCNB announced IU Intention to open a branch bank near Holden Beach when a sign was erected on tlie site this week.

She apparently is not convinced the budget provides for the possibility of the building inspector's job escalating to full-time from part-time. She also wanted the budget amended to carry forward $4,800 from this year's budget to replace a worn out police patrol car. She and Mayor Kenner Amos argued for the amendment because, they said, they have been unable to locate a vehicle during the current fiscal year. The new budget appropriates $5,000 for a police car, Stanley pointed out. However, Barrett and Amos said two vehicles would have to be purchased during the coming year. Stanley, who reminded commissioners they had agreed on the proposed budget in the work session and had posted it for public inspection, was adamant about not making any changes. He moved for passage of the budget before being reminaea mat, oy law, at least two weeks have to elapse between the public hearing and passage.

Actual revenues for fiscal '85 are $364,183, allowing $7,345 to be deducted from the fund balance in this year's budget. Water fund revenues budgeted for next year total $225,885, or about $10,000 more than the current year. Actual water fund revenues estimated for fiscal '85 are $264,727, or almost $50,000 above what was budgeted. Because of this, $41,915 is deducted from the fund balance in the proposed budget. Expenses General fund expenses in the proposed budget, in most categories, are up. Some more than others. Three categories show substantial decreases. Expenses for streets under the Powell Bill show the biggest drop, with $36,170 in the proposed budget as compared with $56,616 in last year's budget and $66,316 actually spent. Accounting for most of the difference is capital outlay for streets. The budget nroDoses to snend $19,900 in fiscal '86. In fiscal '85, $41,666 was budgeted and $51,266 was actually spent.

In fiscal '85. $16,700 was budgeted and $17,150 was spent. Governing body expenses dropped in this year's budget to $12,060 from $17,227 in fiscal '85 and the $14,576 actually spent. Elmination of $5,500 in contracted services accounts for most of the drop. Of the categories increased, planning and zoning shows the biggest jump with $18,625 budgeted in fiscal '86. This compares to $8,625 budgeted in fiscal '85 and $6,205 actually spent. Professional services under this category accounted for the big jump since $17,875 is proposed in the new budget while only $7,500 was budgeted in fiscal '85. The new budget calls for salary increases of about six percent for administration and 14 percent in the police department. Expenses of inspections is up to $10,128 in the new budget, compared with $13,418 budgeted in fiscal '85 and $12,900 actually spent. Mast of the difference is addition of a full-time salary of $15,000 and elimination of part-time salary expenses of $10,400. Commissioners, who will meet June 17 at 7:30 p.m. to hold public hearings on rezoning requests, will more than likely take final action on the budget at that time.
