Council to approve budget at tonight's meeting

Council will approve 2019 budget at tonight's meeting

The city had an operating budget of $101 million with the driving force being things like the regional transit partnership, plus RCMP and inflation.

Road improvements were the main talking point last month in budget deliberations such as improving Black Gold Drive and 43rd Avenue.

In total the city is forecasting a revenue tax increase of 2.89% for next year, climbing to 4.45% in 2020 and 5.05% in 2021.

Mayor Bob Young though said in his time discussing budgets they've never hit the projected marks in years 2 and 3.  (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
