Members of Drumheller Town Council were present at an open house to inform residents on what will be changing in the 2019 budget. In 2018, the decision was to cut the town's budget cost by 5 per cent.
This was to make sure the services that add to the quality of life in Drumheller will not raise taxes for residents in the valley.
"We would like to see a 5 per cent in the operating budget," explained Town Councillor Fred Mackowecki. "And they worked hard for months and months. I can sleep at night knowing that the staff at the Town have worked really hard to show we are being responsible."
Communications Officer for the Town of Drumheller, Julia Feilding, was also at the open house to answer questions. She spoke about the importance of being informed of what is happening in your community.
"It is really good to be informed about what is happening in your local area. It helps with your decision making too, this is your money, it is taxpayers money, so the more you know about it, the better."
"Council presented their proposed budget for 2019 on Monday and went through that. SO this is now taking that to the public so they can ask questions and see where taxpayers money is purposed to go in 2019."
