It’s a busy evening in local government, with both the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners and Asheville City Council meeting May 28 to discuss their budgets.
Commissioners meet at 4:30 p.m. to consider a proposal that would raise the property tax rate by 15 percent to fill in the gap from a drop in real estate values, increased funding requests and unfunded mandates.
Asheville City Council meets at 5 p.m. to consider a smaller property tax hike to balance the books.
