Public hearing on 2023-2024 general fund budget set for June 15

WEST COLUMBIA, SC -- The Lexington Two Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing on the proposed general fund budget for 2023-2024.


The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 15, at the Lexington Two Innovation Center, 509 Bulldog Blvd.  It will be followed by the regular monthly board meeting at 6 p.m.  Members of the public are invited to sign up at the Innovation Center before the start of the budget hearing to speak there, in accordance with Policy BEDH.


Lexington Two is not requesting a millage increase for the new budget year, which begins July 1, and continues to post the lowest tax rate among all districts in Richland and Lexington Counties.


As a reminder, the district’s general fund operating budget provides funding for the district’s day-to-day operations, such as paying salaries, insurance, utilities, and purchasing supplies, materials, and services. The district’s capital projects improvement funds (CPIF) pay for fixed assets such as facilities and equipment.

Members of the public who are not able to attend the meeting in person will be able to watch live video of the June 15 budget public hearing, and the monthly board meeting that follows, by visiting  Recordings of previous Board meetings are available at that link as well.
