Lake of Bays’ mayor not happy with District budget
Bob Young is criticizing District Council move to add more money to the roads reserve fund. The Lake of Bays mayor says the four or $500,000 addition is not needed.
Young says they had given District staff around three per cent target to work with when putting the budget together.
One of the items on the agenda is how the new OPP billing model is going to be rolled out to the municipalities.
Young says if passed he believes it will have a negative impact on communities like Lake of Bays.
He says it should be done on an actual cost based system.
Another item in the budget is the Communications Manager position, which Young says is a waste of money.
Young says this of one of numerous items recently added to the budget which has now increased it to about five per cent. Council is meeting at 7 p.m. today.
