New Hanover commissioners talk budget, look to renovate office building, discuss WASTEC

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Commissioners talked budget today. One item was the building the county owns at 320 Chestnut Street.

Commissioners voted 3-2, with Brian Berger and Rick Catlin voting against, to move forward with a plan for a $10 million renovation of the water-damaged building. The board also wants to look into leasing out a few floors.

A final vote is expected june 18th.

Commission Chair Ted Davis says the board is trying to put together a budget that will use the revenue neutral tax rate this year and next year.

The budget plan includes the cost of completing CFCC’s Union Station classroom building and starting on the school’s fine arts project.

Commissioners also discussed refurbishing WASTEC. The work on the sustainable energy facility would cost around $27 million.

Commissioner Jason Thompson did not find the idea very appealing, so commissioners scheduled a work session on the issue.
