Daily Weather Briefing for Wednesday, June 12, 2019



Commissioners Pass 2019-2020 Budget

The county commissioners met last night for their regular meeting for June 2019. During the meeting, commissioners voted 4-1 (Higdon opposing) to pass a budget for the 2019-2020 Fiscal Year in the amount of $53,253,502 for the General Fund and $4,227,042 for the Fire Tax.

The millage rate on assessed property values has been increased from the proposed 36.94¢ per $100 to 37.47¢ per $100, with the bulk of the increase to fund education. Videos of the meeting will be published beginning tomorrow at https://thunderpigblog.blogspot.com/2019/06/mcboc20190611.html



Outlook

A coastal low-pressure system will bring scattered showers to the area on today while cool high pressure keeps temperatures well below normal. High pressure will push into the region on Thursday and Friday leading to very pleasant conditions for mid-June. The high will move off the coast this weekend leading to a return in humidity and scattered showers and thunderstorms.
