WINCHESTER – The early numbers are in for the Township of North Dundas’
2015 budget allotments, with the indication being more slashing could
be done when council reconvenes in the new year to crunch the numbers
At the close of Wed., Dec. 10’s meeting, the municipality was sitting
with an unofficial levy increase of 4.19 per cent, with an expenditure
plan of $10.8 million.
Comparatively, township number crunchers expect just $5.3 million in
revenues in the coming year. Anticipated taxation of $5.6 million would
then make up the difference.
Overall, it is a $223,397 increase, at the draft stage, from 2014 to 2015.
Politicians and department heads will continue to work the numbers in
the next few weeks before further changes are made. Further budgetary
discussion is planned for North Dundas’ Tues., Jan. 13, 2015 council
Highlights of the draft budget include: a public works spending plan of
$4.2 million, recreation expenditure totalling $2.5 million, and $7.6
million for the North Dundas Fire Department, split between four
