St. Catharines Council approves 2013 Budget
St. Catharines City Council gave the 2013 budget the stamp of approval Monday evening.
St. Catharines Mayor Brian McMullan tells CKTB the increase wound up being around 2.5%.
That translates to an increase of around $74 for the average homeowner.
Councillors spent more than 2 hours discussing various points of the budget, including the contentious Customer Service Program which saw its budget cut in half.
Council cut around $125 000 in all from the budget, with other cuts to the senior staff Christmas Party.
