December 12, 2011 at 5:30pm is budget night in Regina! Bring your flags, your WWE style signs (Fougere 3:16 says: “I am a believer in prudent fiscal management”) and the indispensable “municiple politics is #1” novelty foam finger (seriously though, if you bring any of those things you’ll likely be asked to leave).
But it is fun, no really it is: there are way more people in attendance, the delegations make grand, visionary statements about the city and don’t forget the tense build-up to see what the mill rate increase will be by the end of the evening. Right now, the budget suggests a 3.9% mill rate increase, but will it stay there?
I plan to dress up for it, like I’m going to a party. You should come too!
