2017 Ed­son Bud­gets

Coun­cil has ap­proved the 2017 Cap­i­tal and Op­er­at­ing Bud­gets as pre­sented. The Bud­get uses a pro­posed 0% mu­nic­i­pal tax in­crease. This means the amount of taxes col­lected by the Town for mu­nic­i­pal pur­poses will re­main the same as 2016, how­ever, the ac­tual taxes levied on an in­di­vid­ual prop­erty will be de­pen­dent on their prop­erty as­sess­ment.

For the 2017 Cap­i­tal bud­get, we have the an­nual Equip­ment Re­place­ment, Bridges and Cul­verts, Well Ex­plo­ration and Park Trails projects. There is also an al­lowance for the 2017 Road Re­hab Pro­gram. Some on­go­ing projects from 2016 are listed, in­clud­ing the park for Hil­len­dale sub­di­vi­sion, the Waste­water Treat­ment Plant, and a mi­nor ad­min­is­tra­tive project for the west end sewer line. There are some new projects be­ing pre­sented at this time. There is an ad­di­tion of a train­ing struc­ture for the Ed­son Fire Depart­ment, New breath­ing ap­pa­ra­tus sets for the EFD, and a re­vamp of the En­trance signs to match the new brand­ing.

A bud­get re­cap is avail­able on our web­site at www.ed­son. ca/de­part­ments/fi­nancead­min­is­tra­tion.
