Important Updates

Staff is currently working through logistics with Waste Industries regarding the company’s taking over trash and recycling collection for the Town of Beaufort. In an effort to ensure the transition goes as smoothly as possible, it has been decided to wait until April before transferring that service completely to Waste Industries. A firm date will be announced in mid-March. In the meantime, Public Works will continue to collect household waste on Mondays, recycling on Tuesdays and yard and bulk items on Wednesdays. We will continue to seek public input in the coming weeks. Please email any concerns, questions or suggestions to Public Information Officer Jennifer Allen at

Talk Trash” with a representative from Waste Industries will be held 4-6 p.m. Feb. 22, 4-6 p.m. March 8 and 4-6 p.m. March 22 in the Train Depot, 614 Broad St. Citizens are encouraged to come and ask any questions they have about the new trash collection process. If you can't make these informal meetings, you can check out this film made in Hillsborough that shows how easy the carts are to handle and where to place properly for pick up.

Ricks Avenue is closed to through traffic until further notice due to a failed 36" culvert, which has caused a sink hole in the roadway. Crews are currently being scheduled for repairs. Updates will be provided as they become available. Contact Town Hall at 252-728-2141 for more details.

The Town’s annual budget process is a method of planning and communicating operational and capital objectives and allocating financial resources to achieve them.

The process is usually performed over several months. The North Carolina Local Government Budget and Fiscal Control Act (GS 159, Article 3) requires local governments to adopt an annual budget by June 30 of each year, based on the state mandated fiscal year which runs from July 1 to June 30.

The Town’s Annual Budget Ordinance will be balanced in accordance with the Local Government Budget and Fiscal Control Act (NCGS 159-8), which states “A budget ordinance is balanced when the sum of estimated net revenues and appropriated fund balances is equal to appropriations.”

Capital Improvement Plan

The Town of Beaufort’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is a planning and budget tool, which addresses the repair and replacement of existing infrastructure as well as the construction or acquisition of new facilities and equipment to accommodate current and future demands for service.

More specifically, the CIP is intended to accomplish the following objectives:

  • To build the facilities required to support the Town’s public service responsibilities
  • To improve financial planning by comparing needs with resources, estimating future bond uses and debt service, and identifying tax rate implications
  • To establish priorities among projects so that limited available funds are used to the best advantage
  • To plan public facility construction and major equipment purchases and coordinate timing with the public needs
  • To support the physical development objectives contained in approved Town plans
