Treasurer give thumbs up to township
North Glengarry has come through the first half of 2016 with few problems, according to treasurer Johanna ( Annie) Levac’s report for January 1 to June 30.
“Overall, for the first six months, I don’t see any major red flags,” she added.
With an annual operating budget of $6,334,926, the township had revenues of $3,786,372 at the end of the first six months, or 60 per cent of the projected figure.
Expenses were $4,470,210 or 48 per cent of the $9,289,286 budget.
While Maxville Sports Complex revenues were $113,392 or 41 per cent of the projection of $ 274,137, costs were also lower at $242,307 or 42 per cent of the budget of $579,525.
RARE recycling facility rev- enues were $382,192 or 48 per cent of the yearly estimate of $795,977. Expenses were 44 per cent or $451,288 of the annual budget of $1,023,607.
Maxville’s 125th anniversary celebrations in June increased expenses and revenues in some categories but resulted in an overall surplus. Revenues were $19,308, which when combined with a $10,000 township grant, added up to $29,308. Expenses came in at $24,165, leaving a sur- plus of $5,143.
“It shows a good use of taxpayers’ dollars,” said Coun. Carma Williams, chair of the anniversary committee. “It demonstrates the committee was prudent in their spending. We spent under half of the allotted $10,000 the township gave us.”
Most of the revenues came from commemorative T-shirt, hat, mini-caber and gala dinner ticket sales.
