In-depth on Mecklenburg County's proposed budget

Mecklenburg County
Mecklenburg County Manager Dena Diorio presents her budget recommendations to county commissioners.

Budget season is underway in local governments. We’ve heard from the city about its proposed budget for fiscal year 2023 which contains no tax hike.

Now, it’s Mecklenburg County’s turn. County Manager Dena Diorio presented her budget to county commissioners on Thursday and will join us to take us through it.

It also suggests no tax hike while containing raises for salaried and hourly county employees, money for environmental improvements, for the arts, affordable housing and more. But it only provides half the additional funding requested by CMS.

We go through the budget with Dena Diorio, County Commission Chair George Dunlap and the county’s budget director.
