West Grey Council passes a ‘responsible and equitable’ budget for 2018

Posted On: Tuesday, January 9, 2018
Described as a budget that is equitable and accountable, West Grey council passed the 2018 budget, which saw a local tax levy increase of 2.31%.

“As with every budget, there are several pressures Council must consider, and decisions are not always easy,” said Mayor Kevin Eccles. “The budget we passed today is a responsible budget, and I’d like to thank staff for their work in planning for West Grey’s needs today and the demands that tomorrow will bring.”

Kerri Mighton, West Grey Treasurer and Director of Finance, added that there are a number of several significant projects planned, spanning the municipality.

“Several projects, such as infrastructure work in Durham, the bridge program in Glenelg and investments in all of our recreational assets will immediately enhance life in West Grey,” Mighton said. “Others, like planning for a new police headquarters, are long-term projects that will position us well for future needs.”

Today’s budget presentation and background information are posted to www.westgrey.com.
