Hilton Head council to take final vote on $70 million budget

Town Council will take a final vote Tuesday night on a $70 million budget for the coming year.

The Town of Hilton Head Island's fiscal year 2014-2015 budget increases funds to pay for design and permitting for projects such as the University of South Carolina Beaufort campus planned for Office Park Road, and additions to Chaplin Linear Park.

It also adds nearly $300,000 to the Economic Development Corporation.

The development group will now have $441,000 to pay for an executive director, an assistant and office space, among other operations.

Council gave initial approval June 10 to this year's budget.

Tuesday's meeting begins at 4 p.m. at Town Hall, 1 Town Center Court on Hilton Head.
