The Hinesville City Council announced Monday during a budget workshop they do not intend to raise property taxes or furlough employees since officials have adjusted the recommended budget for fiscal year 2011.
City officials will use $1.5 million of Hinesville’s fund balance, or reserve, to balance a revised $38.9 million FY 2011 budget. The city’s recommended general fund has been adjusted to $19,637,987.
