LUD of La Broquerie floats mill rate decrease
The Local Urban District (LUD) of La Broquerie committee is proposing a mill rate decrease and several roadwork projects for 2023.
The committee’s 2023 service plan was presented to council last Wednesday. It will be bundled into the RM of La Broquerie’s annual budget later this winter.
The committee wants to lower the mill rate by 2.86 percent, to 0.699 from 0.719.
Proposed street upgrades include the installation of a sidewalk on Choiselat Street and repair work on Nadeau Street. An old sidewalk will be removed along Savard Street, and curb repairs will be carried out on Normandeau Bay. More streetlights will be installed on Desgagne Street near Gamache Bay and Simard Street.
The service plan’s total budget is $625,822, down from $640,047 last year. A surplus of $35,273 will be carried over from last year.
Pay for each LUD committee member—Gaetan Bisson, Rick Lafreniere, and Ron Vielfaure—is $387.79 per month plus mileage.
