There’s a lot to consider for next year’s county budget and an increase could be as high as 5.7 per cent. County treasurer Laura Janke says that doesn’t include growth, which could take it down by two per cent.

She says councillors aren’t thrilled with how high the increase could be. They’ll get a review of the budget at next week’s council meeting.

There’s a lot of discussion about the Rail Trail with the junction bridge needing replacement. It’s a big ticket item councillors are trying to figure out how to pay for.
