MORRISBURG – South Dundas has released details of its 2015 municipal budget, which includes a 1.5 per cent tax increase or an extra $12.19 on the yearly municipal bill.

That’s based on a residential property worth roughly $178,000.

When you factor in the United Counties and the education taxes the figure jumps to $35.19 more this year compared to 2014.

The budget includes the first in a series of debt payments for the South Dundas Municipal Center in Morrisburg, lighting for the Morrisburg waterfront as well as preliminary engineering and architectural work, creation of another staffing position – a deputy treasurer, $19,000 in donations to community organizations and agencies and a contribution toward a new dog pound.

A financial audit of last year’s budget will take place in May.
