Board meets for preliminary budget hearing

The Mint Hill Board of Commissioners met Monday evening for a preliminary budget meeting. The board heard from Parks and Recreation, the Planning Board, and the police and fire departments.
Parks and Recreation requested various equipment, including a sweeper truck, a water tank which is currently borrowed from the fire department, a straw blower, a stump grinder, though it was said it could be just as effective to pay for that service, and a Bobcat utility vehicle. Parks and Rec is asking for a total of $387,000.
The Planning Board’s budget looks very similar to last year’s. Last year it received $323,360 of the budget, and this year it is asking for $323,961.
