Chapel Hill Town Council members discussed the preliminary budget proposal for the 2016-17 fiscal year, passed a traffic calming measure on Edgewater Circle and passed the Land Use Management Ordinance text amendments to comply with changes to state law.
On average, the town has 50 job positions that are not filled.
The money budgeted for those jobs goes unspent because the budget plans for zero job vacancies.
Chapel Hill Town Council member Jessica Anderson questioned if it was normal to have many vacancies.
Kenneth C. Pennoyer, business management director for Chapel Hill, said it was common for larger governments to have vacancies.
