The Bradley County Commission met Friday for a voting session and to pass the 2024-2025 fiscal year budget for the county.

 

The most significant highlight of the budget for the coming year is a 3% raise for all county employees.

 

The budget will not increase taxes and no new debt will be taken on by the county. In fact, $7.5 million dollars of current debt will be paid from the new budget resulting in the lowest overall debt liability in 20+ years for Bradley County.

 

The budget includes 18 funds totaling over $210 million.

 

The budget passed unanimously during the meeting and goes into effect, today, July 1st.
