District closes in on budget

PORT HARDY — Final budget required to go before province by mid-May

The District of Port Hardy has been busy working on its budget.

“We’re well on the way,” said Mayor Hank Bood, at the regular meeting of council Feb. 10, adding the district is further ahead in its budget process than counterparts in some other municipalities.

“We’ve worked through the operational aspects of the budget and now council is considering the capital side,” said Chief Administrative Officer Rick Davidge.

“They’ll work on that probably all of February,” Davidge said, adding the budget has to be submitted to the province by mid-May.
