SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – Dorchester District 2 is facing budget problems.
According to the Summerville Journal Scene, the district is looking at a nearly $8,000,000 deficit in the proposed budget for 2019-2020.
On Monday, the district plans to ask Dorchester County Council to raise taxes.
The district must go to council for any funding increase because DD2 is not fiscally autonomous.
DD2’s Chief Financial Officer says the district has missed out on about $134 million because the county does not charge the highest property tax legally allowed.
