“I am pleased with the in-depth dialogue and review of the 2019 budget,” said Mayor Christine Robinson. “Council’s deliberations were thoughtful and forward-thinking. I believe this budget meets the goals of investing in West Grey while being mindful of the corresponding pressures on our ratepayers.”
For the 2019 budget, the increase of 3.73% translates to $4.35 per $100,000 assessment.
Mayor Robinson noted that the foundation to council’s decision-making was commitment to investing in and maintaining West Grey’s assets and infrastructure, while planning for important community-building initiatives such as enhanced communication and fostering culture.
