Resolving assessments could put town budgets in jeopardy, officials say
Resolving assessments could put town budgets in jeopardy, officials say

LOUISBURG -- As the Board of Equalization and Review, Franklin County commissioners said they will hold assessment appeals open until the end of October.
That decision came over the objections of Franklinton management, officials and staff.
Earlier in Monday's meeting, they argued that such an extension puts their 2024-25 spending plan in jeopardy -- including their ability to count on revenues and make new police payrolls.

New EMS site, water tower sites generate sticker shock

LOUISBURG -- Franklin County commissioners agreed to pay $200,000 for just over 2 acres and $150,000 for just under a half acre for two separate public service projects.
Officials said the projects are needed and the negotiated price is a sign of the times.
First, the board authorized county management to move forward with purchasing 2.01 acres from the May family so that the county can build a new EMS station to serve Bunn along N.C. 39 -- next to Bunn Middle School.

During the board's April meeting, Franklinton-based Lilium Homes Inc. presented commissioners and residents with their plans to build a 48-unit townhome development at 15 and 17 Communication Drive.

Youngsville looking to make trade with home developers

YOUNGSVILLE -- Commissioners agreed to negotiate an easement with a developer that could serve as the linchpin for sidewalks connecting to downtown.
Holden Village developers need a temporary construction easement to complete a 120-unit townhome development along the southside of Holden Road, just west of Porter Hill Drive.
In exchange for that, Youngsville staff and officials want the developer, Eastwood Homes, to at least grade the area along Holden Road, essentially paving the way for the town to lay concrete for a sidewalk later.
