Fort Saskatchewan City Council is holding off on dropping the budget too soon.
After Monday's (Nov.26) budget deliberation meeting, no significant cuts have yet to be made on the proposed 3.2 per cent property tax increase.
"One cut has been made on a service level review of $100,000," said mayor Gale Katchur.
Some of the capital project cuts included the paving of the dog park road at $440,000 and transfer station site enhancements at $78,750.
Councillor Lisa Makin was not in favour of the city not going forward with the paving of the dog park road or parking lot.
"That road is atrocious."
Capital project cuts do not affect property tax rates, as the money would have come from reserves.
"We will continue on day four on Thursday (Nov.29) and see where we go from there," added Katchur.
More cuts are still expected in the personnel request department. However, no positions were turned down on Monday.
The council meeting on December 11 is scheduled for formal budget approvals.
