CRD proposes tax increase to pay for region's sewage treatment plant

If you live in the Capital Regional District, get ready to fork out more money.

Wednesday the CRD Board passed a provisional budget containing around a 6 per cent increase in operational spending.

That’s about a $50 increase per person annually.

The CRD says the increase is for employee contracts, the cost of living, and for the region’s sewage treatment plant.

“So this budget, while of course 6 per cent is something a lot of people will say is a lot of many, for the average person that’s about a dollar a week, and for those in the core that includes sewage treatment,” said Colin Plant, CRD Chair.

The numbers still need to be finalized before they’re locked in, in March.
