Municipal budget meeting

scheduled for next week

by Wendy Spence

        Municipal staff and council will be discussing Thames Centre’s financial forecast for 2019. A budget meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday, June 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the council chambers in the municipal office on Hamilton Road. The meeting is open to the public.
        The environmental services department budget was discussed Tuesday, June 18.
        Budget meetings were originally scheduled in March but they were cancelled while the municipality went through the process of hiring a new director of finance. Kim Grogan joined the Thames Centre staff earlier this month.
        One of the major expenditures on the agenda is the new Thorndale Community Centre. Earlier this year, council agreed to add the estimated $2.8 million cost to the budget for discussion.
        More information regarding meetings is available on the municipality’s website:
