DBRC's Chris Daigle says the $84,254 budget includes a little over $40,000 in salaries and benefits, along with $3,000 for the a downtown mural initiative and $3,500 for facade improvement.
Daigle says the new facade improvement program is expected to provide $500 to merchants who make improvements their business' facade.
The budget will be paid for by downtown merchants via a special improvement levy.
