Budget in Brief

Budget Summary

We developed this year budget based on fiscal conservancy. In October of 2016 the Town was seriously impacted by Hurricane Matthew. Prior planning - both operational and financial - served the Town very well in the hurricane response. The Town has focused most of fiscal year 2017 on the recovery effort and will continue to do so next year.

The Town has worked very closely with FEMA on its recovery efforts to ensure the highest reimbursement allowable. These efforts will continue well into fiscal year 2018. With a potential total cost of $70.0 million, the Town has also worked closely with state and county officials for their participation in the recovery effort.

Tourism on the Island is back in business, and continues its importance. It is a retirement destination for many. It is a home to many young families. As a result, our budget addresses the need to maintain our facilities reflecting the expectations of a diverse residential population as well as visitors that make the island their tourism destination. The Town will continue to find ways to support and stimulate our economy in order to better face the many challenges of increasing demands for service by residents and tourists alike, and to prepare for the next storm.
