The Town of Morinville is looking to cut back on their previously recommended tax hike.
Morinville council will be reducing the proposed six per cent tax increase that administration put on the table earlier this year.
"We're looking at a tax reduction of 1.1 per cent, so we're looking at about a 4.9 per cent increase to property tax at this point," said mayor Barry Turner.
The operational and capital cuts totaled $301,656, coming from some large cuts in the removal of events like Oktoberfest and pushing back planned infrastructure projects such as Perras Place Park.
"I know there's going to be more cuts coming. Certainly I've got a number that's yet to be addressed," added Turner.
Residents would see nearly $22.76 of savings with a tax increase of 4.9 per cent compared to the original proposal.
Third reading of the budget will come back to council on Tuesday (Feb.27).
