RM of Cartier councillors approve financial plan for 2013

  • Print

RM of Cartier council recently approved a 7% increase in the mill rate for 2013.


CAO Anne Burns said this year’s expenses include replacing an obsolete phone system and computer upgrades in the municipal office, a wastewater and drinking water study, drainage projects, playground improvements, and renegotiating municipal grass-cutting, among other costs.


As well, school taxes for residents whose properties lie within Prairie Rose and Red River Valley School Divisions rose by about 5%.


Burns said municipal revenues generated in 2013 will remain about the same as for last year. Council will review municipal fees and charges with a mandate to keep them revenue-neutral.
Cartier’s five-year plan shows some major expenses for the coming years, such as replacement of aging vehicles and equipment used for firefighting, at the nuisance grounds and for road maintenance. The municipal shop will have to be expanded.


"We’re looking at extending the low pressure sewer system in some areas," Burns said, but added that a public hearing will be held before any definite plan is in place.


Elie’s cast water lines must be replaced and the five-year plan shows $1 million estimated for that project in 2014.


The municipality will celebrate its centennial next year, and $50,000 is designated for that purpose.
