The Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) Board of Directors has adopted its 2020-2024 Financial Plan.
The 2020 operating budget totals $33,980,391, which results in an increase in taxation, on average, of 4.6%. “I would like to thank staff, the Board and the many other stakeholders who have been working for months on preparing this plan,” says RDEK Chair Rob Gay. “As a board and a region, we are always mindful of the need to provide quality service to our taxpayers while balancing the tax impacts. I believe we have maintained that balance in this budget.”
