The Glengarry News - - News - BY AN­GELA BROWN News Staff

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.
