Moncton City Council Budget Talks continue today... they say that our tax rate won't be going up... water rates are going up though... so the average household will pay $27 more year.
Deliberations will continue Friday. Budget is supposed to be approved December 18 (just in time for Christmas!?)

It sounds like this budget business at Moncton Council gets stressful.... Shane Magee in the Times and Transcript has a story about Councillors asking questions, then other councillors saying like 'People who weren't here when we covered that shouldn't ask questions- show up to the meeting next time.' (not direct quotes)
*Editorial: It sounds like it's practically a WWE Cage Match in there... we're always looking for younger people to get interested in municipal politics... maybe this wrestling angle will attract some new people??
The article has a list of who missed what over the last 100 meetings or so...

Basically Moncton City Council is trying to not raise our tax rate... but the City is getting less money from the Province because the Province has put a freeze on tax assessments (that means less money for the City)... sooooo.... Moncton Council is trying to save money wherever it can... like by not using as much pavement to fill potholes...
