2019 draft budget to be tabled at City Hall

A first look at how the City plans to spend your tax dollars this year will be tabled Wednesday.

It’s draft budget day at Ottawa City Council.

Mayor Jim Watson campaigned on a 3% property tax cap in the 2018 municipal election.

However, it is expected that the Ottawa Police Service draft budget–which is also being tabled Wednesday–will call for a 5% increase.

Council meets at 10:00 a.m. The Police Services Board meets at 8:30 a.m.
