City council ready to pass 2024 municipal budget

By Tim Davidson Jan 29, 2024 | 10:45 AM

The City of Kenora’s 2024 municipal budget could finally be passed today.

Council has held at least nine meeting over the past four months.

Mayor Andrew Poirier says it’s been a difficult process to bring any budget increase down.

“Kudos to everybody for sticking with it, chipping away at it and trying to get it to a reasonable number,” says Poirier.

“I’m not going to presuppose anything before a vote but that’s kind of where we landed at 3.11 percent now.  Which is, in all discussions with kinds of other municipalities, that was one of the lower one’s I heard.”

The increase would be down a full percentage point from earlier this month.

Tonight’s meeting starts at 5:00 in council chambers.
