Kingsville Budget Deliberations Around The Corner

Kingsville council will tackle the 2017 budget next week.

Council received the draft document before the holidays which called for a proposed 4.8% tax increase.

Councillor Thomas Neufeld says there are always challenges during budget deliberations

"We're going to go through it with a fine tooth comb and we always look for savings that will benefit the taxpayer hopefully without compromising services," says Neufeld.

Neufeld says he is expecting an increase but not the projected 4.8%.

Budget deliberations begin on Tuesday at 9am.

A second meeting is planned for January 31st and if needed a third will be held on February 22nd.
