Enderby budget draws no debate

Three readings were given to the budget, which calls for a 2.84 per cent increase

Enderby residents aren’t busting down the doors at city hall over spending and taxes.

Council held a public input session Monday as part of the 2015 budget process.

“Once again we had nobody show up,” said Mayor Greg McCune.

“In the 14 years I’ve been on council, I only remember one person ever coming to an input session. I don’t believe people don’t care but in a community our size, it’s a daily conversation with people. if people have a concern, they come and talk to us.”

Three readings were given to the budget, which calls for a 2.84 per cent increase to taxes or $25 for the average home. One per cent of that goes towards infrastructure.

“It’s a pretty strong budget,” said McCune.
