Lilburn adopts 2019/2020 budget; includes employee pay raise

Following a public hearing held May 21, the Lilburn City Council voted this week to approve the city’s fiscal year 2019/2020 budget. The annual budget includes a $8,291,161 General Fund, $75,000 Confiscated Assets Fund, $1,377,000 Capital Projects Fund, and $2,590,325 from Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax funding (2017 SPLOST).

The new budget will also allow the city to offer a 4 percent cost of living increase for all full-time employees. According to the city, this increase makes the entry level salaries for officers of the Lilburn Police Department the highest in Gwinnett.

The Fiscal Year 2019/2020 budget runs from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020.
