Seven Devils LogoJuly 3, 2013. The Seven Devils Town Council unanimously adopted the 2013-14 fiscal-year budget on June 25.

The $1,776,399 budget represents an increase of $243,628 over Seven Devils’ prior budget. With the redistribution of the sales tax that included a 40/60 split with municipalities in Watauga County (excluding Boone), Seven Devils expects to receive an extra $70,000 or so, according to April figures from Watauga County Finance Director Margaret Pierce. 

The budget maintains a 51-cent property tax rate and also includes a 2 percent cost of living raise that began July 1.
