At last night’s Village of Westport Council mtg, there were discussions regarding both the 2016 and 2017 Village budgets.
The final numbers are in for the 2016 Village budget. On a budget of approx $1.6million, we came in with a deficit of $1,000. Absolutely amazing work by Council, staff and the contractors. Particular kudos to our Treasurer, Anne Marie Koiner, who worked with Council and put additional checks and balances in place mid-year. Congratulations Team!!!!!!! and thank you for your dedication in coming in on budget.
Council also spent considerable time on round #4 of developing the 2017 budget. We are committed to bringing in a budget that has no frills, no unnecessary purchases and yet covers those expenses that are either in the interest of public safety, required to protect damage to infrastructure or required by law. Round #5 will occur at the Committee of the Whole meeting on Tuesday, February 21 @ 7:00 p.m. Please join us and hear the discussions first hand.
