“This year’s budget highlights council’s commitment to growth and infrastructure,” said Mayor George Pirie. “By being fiscally responsible with operating costs, we were able to add a number of key capital projects to this year’s budget. Overall, it will position the City to capitalize on revenue to make the right investments for the community.”
