The Municipal Offices of Kincardine are undergoing renovations and, therefore, the venue for meetings is being changed.

A Special Meeting of Council to consider the new budget has been called and will be held Monday, January 12th (2015) at 5:00 p.m. at the Underwood Community Centre.

It appears that the Municipality will be in a difficult position when it comes to establishing the new budget given challenges such as a 25 per cent decrease in the Bruce Telecom dividend and another 20 per cent cut-back in the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund  (OMPF).  New loans are also going to require debt repayments of almost a quarter million dollars ($247,000).

As it stands, the required tax rate will see an increase of 8.7 per cent (8.7%).

In addition, the Regular Meeting of Kincardine Council slated for Wednesday, January 14th (2015) will also be held in Underwood.
