Haliburton County councilors will take a look at the first draft budget today. In committee meetings, members will see the first draft of different budgets.

The roads department is facing a tough decision after they didn’t receive funding to fix Dark Lake Bridge. According to a report, they are suggesting either limiting the work to urgent repairs, or postponing the project until funding money is available.

At the same time, Haliburton County Paramedic Services is also looking at an increase to their budget. They’re looking to replace two ambulances, and will need more money for medical supplies.

It’s the first time councillors will see the numbers ahead of finalizing the budget early next year.
