City bud­get to be re­vised

The Daily Courier - - OKANAGAN - By Daily Courier Staff

Some re­vi­sions to the city’s fi­nan­cial plan, none of which will have an im­pact on this year’s tax rate, are ex­pected to­day at Kelowna city coun­cil.

The changes largely re­flect a switch in fund­ing sources.

For ex­am­ple, a $200,000 bud­get for de­vel­op­ment of Lost Creek Park in Wilden was re­duced be­cause a res­i­dents’ group helped raise money for the project.

And a plan to im­prove the court­yard around the Lau­rel build­ing was can­celled be­cause a hoped-for pro­vin­cial grant did not ma­te­ri­al­ize.

The boards around the rink at Pros­pera Place were re­placed, at cost of $318,000, us­ing funds from a re­serve ac­count.
