CAT increases operating budget

Posted: Updated:

Chatham Area Transit's board has increased their operating budget more than $1.5 million to just under $20 million.

They have also raised the millage rate. Taxes for folks with homes worth $100,000 will go up 85 cents a month.

CAT officials say they need the money to pay off debt and pay increases in expenses like insurance and fuel.

Chatham County commissioners still have to approve the hike.
