Grey County sets Budget.

Media Release from Grey County:

In 2018, Grey County residents will continue to receive high quality services and benefit from investment in valuable infrastructure while seeing only a small 0.36% increase in the County budget.

“Council and staff have worked together to deliver a budget that is responsible and future focused. Grey County provides many important services that residents need and deserve. We believe this budget balances the competing needs of these programs and manages rising costs and inflation,” said Grey County Warden Stewart Halliday.

Council, while sitting as committee of the whole, approved the 0.36% budget increase at their regular meeting on Jan. 11.

Grey County delivers a wide range of services to residents. The County maintains 877km of roads, operates three long-term care homes with 316 beds, helps more than 800 families access affordable child care and makes housing available for families and individuals at 888 units across the county. Other public services include the administration of social services programs like Ontario Works, paramedic services, planning, economic development, tourism, heritage, Provincial Offences administration and more.
