Stanly County had ended the 1965-66 fiscal year on June 20 with an unrestricted surplus of $184,162.60, according to the audit report of Alfred C. Starling, CPA.

“Stanly County has enjoyed another very good year, financially,” Starling reported. “Tax collections were exceptionally good, with 94.63 percent of the current levy collected prior to June 30. Collection of prior years’ taxes was also good.”


Voters of Albemarle had approved the issuance of $775,000 in bonds for improvement of the city’s electrical distribution system in light voting.

The count was 506 in favor of the bonds and 73 against.
