The 2020-2021 proposed budget for the Town of Wilkesboro has been submitted to the Wilkesboro Town Council. A copy of the proposed budged is available for public inspection in the office of the Town Clerk located at 203 West Main Street.   

It is the present intent of the Wilkesboro Town Council to meet in person to conduct a public hearing on the proposed budget at 5:30 P.M. June 1, 2020 in the lobby of the Town Hall, located at 203 West Main Street, Wilkesboro, North Carolina. However, if the then current status of the COVID-19 pandemic in this area precludes an in-person meeting, the public hearing will be conducted instead via ZOOM and notice to that effect will be posted on the entrance doors to Town Hall at least seven days prior to the scheduled hearing. Should that occur, arrangements will be made for the public to attend hearing and make comment remotely and details on how to do so will be provided in such notice.

In accordance with North Carolina General Statute 158-7.(c), notice is also given that  public comment will be received by the Town Council at the time of the public hearing regarding a request made  by the Wilkes Economic Development Corporation (EDC) for the allocation of funds by the Town to EDC to further its ongoing plans for development or expansion of business and industry in Wilkes County by increasing the inventory of available building sites and buildings, improving infrastructure, conducting due diligence inquiries and furthering other aspects of EDC’s programmatic plans and designs.  

After hearing and considering public comment, the Wilkesboro Town Council will vote at that meeting on both the proposed budget and EDC’s request for funding.
