BUDGET PROCESS IN FINAL STRETCH 2/14/2018 8:00:01 AM
Strathroy-Caradoc finance committee met Tuesday night to make some final adjustments to the municipal budget before submitting it to council for final approval. Finance Chair John Brennan says that they focused on 5 seperate items that were flagged for needing further discussion.
Of the 5 items, 3 were returned back into the budget. the most notable item that was slashed by a 6-1 vote was a construction project for a parking lot at the corner of Metcalfe and Albert streets that would have cost $180,000. Instead that money is being put aside into the future needs reserve fund to possibly be used in next years budget. Council will give final approval of the budget on March 5th.
