RDCK Adopts Budget

The Board of the Regional District of Central Kootenay unanimously adopted its 2015—2019 Financial Plan today. The plan continues to manage the surplus and reserve balances in each of the RDCK’s 160+ services.

The General Administration service will increase by 4% from 2014, while Rural Administration will remain the same as 2014.

In 2015, the Board has changed how water service charges are allocated which has resulted in an increase of in all water system user fees. This reflects the true costs of operating, maintaining and delivering safe, potable water to RDCK residents.

Some of the rural areas saw increases in taxation due to the establishment of new services.

Total taxation for the District is approximately $24 million.

"The RDCK thanks those residents who attended our public meetings to review the Financial Plan and provide valuable input, said Karen Hamling, Chair of the Regional District.

The Financial Plan may be viewed on the RDCK website at www.rdck.ca on March 31st.
