Northumberland County Council has approved its budget for 2017, with a base levy increase under the two percent target.
The base levy will come in at 1.9 percent, with a 0.3 percent dedicated infrastructure levy, which will fund about half of the $114.6 million budget.
The other half will be funded through a combination of grants and subsidies from upper levels of government, as well as other revenue sources like property leasing and sale of recycled materials from the county’s Materials Recover Facility.
Councillors had about five weeks to consider the budget, before approving it.
