2019 budget

2019 budget was tabled at recent Council. Our draft operating budget is about $31 million for 2019 with a proposed net tax levy increase of 2.8% over 2018. Mayor asked Staff to identify opportunities for lowering to 2.3%  You can review the budget in great detail.  Proposed new or modified programs/services are reviewed at tab 15.  The budget will be on the March 18 Council agenda.  Let me know what your thoughts are on the matter.  I will be providing my perspective in a few days as I have not yet completed my review.  In an earlier post I did review how the proposed 2.8% would impact your property tax bill.  As you review the budget keep in mind that we will be approving only the 2019 budget; the out years are forecasts.
