Placeholder Image

A public hearing is set for Wednesday on Flowery Branch’s proposed budget for 2009-10.

The city proposes to spend $4 million next fiscal year, which starts July 1, compared to $3.5 million this budget year. That’s a 15 percent increase.

One notable increase is in the city’s 1-cent special purpose local option sales tax fund.

The city has budgeted nearly $350,000 in SPLOST spending, compared to $125,000 this year.

Voters countywide approved a six-year extension of the tax in March.

For its part, Flowery Branch hopes to spend $1.3 million for a sewer lift station at the Cinnamon Cove condominium complex at 6500 Gaines Ferry Road and a force main line.

The public hearing will take place during the Flowery Branch City Council meeting, which is set to start at 9:30 a.m. The meeting will take place in City Hall, 5517 Main St.
