The Town of Braselton is expecting a 31% increase in its General Fund for FY22.

A preliminary budget for Braselton's various departments and funds was recently released by the town.

The town's General Fund, its main governmental fund, is slated to net $7.45 million in revenues in FY22, 31% higher than the town's FY21 budget.
