Taylor adds on to its operating budget

Among some of the bigger increases are $20,000 for a Northern Development Initiative Trust intern, $18,200 to increase the number of hours spent enforcing bylaws, and $29,100 to increase the emergency program budget. 

The Taylor Fire Department is looking at a $34,200 increase for new supplies and training and there’s an additional $69,500 for the Lone Wolf Golf Club’s Clubhouse and $19,900 more for golf course maintenance. 

The board itself added $2,000 to have someone cover for the emergency specialist when they’re out of town and $1,000 for an assessment of the audio system at the Taylor Community Hall. 

Both the operating and capital budgets will be sent to the next meeting for a resolution by council, and the draft budgets will be put up for public consultation in February.
