The first of three days of operational budget deliberations is under way at City hall.
Council is wading their way through four years worth of proposed operational budgets, starting with the suggested $150 million budget for 2014, wrapping up with 2018, which is projected to reach $170 million.
To put that in perspective, the City’s operating budget in 2014 was worth $141 million.
Administration is currently going over each proposed budget, giving council an opportunity to flag individual items for discussion later on.
Council will also hear from community groups appealing funding decisions on Friday.
