Bracebridge Council has approved its 2014 budget and municipal taxes are going up by 2.5 percent. For the average residential property assessed at $200,000 it will mean a hike of $19 over what the owner paid last year. Lots of projects are being tackled this year, including needed roadwork and a new roof for the Bracebridge Public Library. A fire rescue truck will also be replaced and improvements will be made to Bracebridge’s Gostick Soccer Park. For all the
