Greenville elected leaders discussing budget requests, sales tax influx


GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The Greenville City Council met Monday night for a budget workshop to consider city departments’ requests for money.

The council members will also talk about an influx of sales tax revenue.

Greenville makes most of its money from property taxes and sales taxes.

Financial Services Director Bernita Demery said money from property taxes declined after homes were revalued less a few years ago.

She said the money the city made from people shopping locally made up for the deficit.

“It did help us get through a tough time for the city,” Demery said.

The money went to fund essential city services like police, fire-rescue and public works.
