The politics of budgeting for city and county government in the Cape Fear region may have some clashing priorities.

It’s budget time for New Hanover County. On Thursday, county commissioners will have an open work session to discuss the proposed fiscal year budget for 2016-17, which takes effect July 1. The commissioners expect the final budget to come together relatively smoothly.

The report, entitled Pathways to Prosperity:  New Hanover County's Plan for Jobs and Investment, contains a list of recommendations that consultant Jay Garner will present to the Board at 2 PM today.  Whether recommendations from the report will be used to develop or adjust county policy is not yet clear.
 

Today's meeting at the Courthouse in downtown Wilmington is open to the public.

Today at 2 PM, WHQR brings you a live online stream of the report announcement via NHCTV:
