2017/2018 Operating and Capital Budgets Approved

At the April 18, 2017 meeting, Town Council approved a $1.9 million dollar operating budget for the 2017/2018 fiscal year.  The tax rates of $1.65 for residential and $3.15 for commercial will remain the same.  A PDF copy of the approved budget is below.

The key highlight of the 2017/2018 operating budget is a comprehensive marketing and economic development budget driven mostly by Canada 150 summer celebrations and Rendez-Vous 2017 (Tall Ships), both of which will be made possible by grants, along with a continuation of the boat building and façade improvement programs.

Council also approved a $1.5 million dollar capital budget which includes major items such as paving and sidewalk enhancements to lower St. George Street, the waterfront amphitheatre project, sewer improvements to several areas in Town, renovations to the west wing of The Academy, and partnering with the Municipality of the County of Annapolis to bring fibre optic cable to Annapolis Royal. These significant projects are possible in part due to the many grants and donations that have been committed or will be received.
