Town of Taber elected officials got a look into the crystal ball that will be the upcoming provincial budget that will be announced in early March.
Premier Alison Redford visited the town last week where Town of Taber officials were privy to a meet-and-greet dinner where they were able to bend the ear of the premier.
“It’s always a pleasure to have elected officials come to our community and spend some time with us whether it be MLAs or MPs or the premier, it’s always great to have them,” said Ray Bryant, mayor for the Town of Taber.
The brief encounter between the Town of Taber and M.D. of Taber councils and their CAOs netted both questions for their respective regions and a look into what is upcoming for their March provincial budget.
“She (Redford) has stressed that they are not going back to healthcare premiums. That will not happen. There will be no increase in the income tax in regards to budget,” said Bryant in what was relayed from Redford to town council at last week’s dinner meeting.
“There will also be no sales tax. The key one for us in the two municipalities is that the MSI (Municipal Sustainability Initiative) funding will not be touched. The funding that is in place at this point in time will be in place for the long term.”
