Barrington, NS - The Council of the Municipality of the District of Barrington approved the 2016-2017 municipal budget during a special meeting of Council held on June 7, 2016.

After much deliberation, consideration, and trimming the residential tax rate will remain unchanged at $1.00/ $100 of assessment, and the commercial rate will also remain unchanged at $2.55/ $100 of assessment. The total expenditures for the Municipality of the District of Barrington for the 2016-2017 fiscal year are budgeted at $7,751,723

Warden Nickerson said Council was pleased with the budget stating, “Although this will be a lean year, we feel very comfortable with this year’s budget, and are pleased to be able to hold the tax rate.”

Highlights of the approved budget include: paving projects, upgrades for the Sandy Wickens Arena, and funding for a new dehumidifier for the Barrington Regional Curling Centre.
