Big infrastructure projects and big dollars go hand in hand and both will be the subject of a special meeting of Quinte West council tomorrow.
Council will begin considering its capital spending budget for next year.
Staff is recommending new capital investment of $25.5 million in 2018.
The largest projects involve $12 million for a new OPP headquarters and over $6 million for various road and bridge upgrades.
To do the work, staff says council could be taking on over $13 million in new debt.
Currently, Quinte West is carrying almost $130 million of debt over various terms. The city has almost $90 million left before it hits a debt ceiling, as dictated by the province.
Meanwhile, as in the past, city staff is recommending council impose a .5% to 1% tax increase that could only be used for capital spending to avoid at least some of the borrowing.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. Monday at Quinte West city hall.
