At their FY2024 budget workshop on June 5, the Brunswick County Board of Commissioners and management were clear that they are NOT recommending changes to the System Development Fees as previously proposed. Without our involvement, “excessive” fee increases would have gone into effect July 1 and immediately halted ongoing projects and new investment in Brunswick County.
Thank you to Jim DeMay for drafting BASE’s formal comments on this issue. Thank you to so many of you that made calls and attended our information session with Brunswick County staff in Supply.
Any potential discussion of fees is on hold until RVE or a different consultant can review the fee study and recommend more accurate projections and numbers consistent with state law.
We will follow up with additional information as it is available.
Thank you for your ongoing support of BASE. Our mission is to serve as an advocate on regional business issues, exactly like this. The engagement of our members and partners is critical to our continued success.
