The Municipality of North Grenville has released their first draft of the budget for public comment.
The municipality has released a balanced budget that allocates over $26 million to fund projects from road re-construction, new play structure, a satellite fire station and continued improvements to the trail system. Around $13.5 million will be raised from Municipal taxes. This represents a 2% tax rate increase, which is on track with the Long-Term Financial Plan. The rest of the funding will come from grants, user fees, development charges and reserves. There is no borrowing in the 2018 budget.
The draft can be found here and public consultations will be held on November 14th at 6:30pm, 15th at 6:30pm and 16th at 3:30pm.
