South Boston Town Council is set to hold a public hearing at tonight’s meeting on the proposed $9,765,854 budget for 2013-14, one which contains no new taxes nor any increases in taxes or fees.

Tonight’s meeting is set to get underway at 7 p.m. at council chambers on Yancey Street.

The proposed budget includes general fund revenues of $9,559,927 and cemetery fund revenues of $205,658. 

The real estate tax is set at .19 cents per $100 of assessed value, personal property tax at $2 per $100 of value, meals tax at 4 percent of sales and occupancy tax at 5.5 percent of room rate.

Two other items are on the agenda for council’s meeting, one a public hearing on a recommendation from the planning commission to approve a special use permit allowing the property at 1019 Wilborn Avenue to be used as a vehicle repair establishment.

Planners recommended approval with one condition, that all work is done inside the building.

A third item on council’s agenda is consideration of the 2013 hazard mitigation plan.

A public comment period is set for the end of tonight’s meeting.
