Elgin OKs budget
Plans update of zoning maps

The S.C. Treasury Department never gave Elgin Town Council a specific formula to predict the Local Option Sales Tax Revenue, so Mayor Brad Hanley performed the calculations and figured out the numbers on his own. As a result, Elgin Town Council decided to operate on a $722,700 budget for the 2011-12 fiscal year, a figure that is $10,000 more than the initial projected budget. The increase comes from a higher estimate in the Local Option Sales Tax revenue but is balanced out by a comprehensive land use program added to the budget’s expenses.
