The City's capital budget has been approved. After much debate, council voted in favour of teh proposed Part 2 Capital Budget, with total expenditures of about $3.4 Million Dollars.
Part one of teh capital budget was approved in December, a total of 7.3 Million. The approval didn't come without healthy debate however. One hot topic included the reviitilization of Jaycee's pool. The aging outdoor facility will see a facelift to extend its life worth $750,000, but $500,000. of that funding came from federal gas tax dollars.
Mayor Heather Jackson requested that the item be pulled from teh budger and approved separately to gathr more facts about replacing the facility instead. Council ultimately voted to leave the item in the budget.
Other items of debate were the aging tennis courts on Parkside Drive and replacing the EMS phone services prior to 2015. Treasurer Bil Day say's he is pleased with this years capital budget.
