Iroquois Falls budget up 3.9% means $50-$132 more in taxes for ratepayers

When the Iroquois Falls Storm begins play at the Jus Jordan Arena in the fall, the junior hockey team will have a brand-new scoreboard clock.

It’s one of the major items in the Iroquois Falls municipal budget, adopted Monday night.

Mayor Tory Delaurier says it’s worth about $200,000.

“We were planning to put a new clock in anyway, but instead of waiting one more year, we decided to go with it this year,” states the mayor. “And we did get a little bit of  money to go towards that.”

Council also budgeted $600,000 for a new roof over the Jus Jordan Arena and has applied for grants to reduce that expense.

Among other spending plans is repaving the road through Porquis, as well as Rice Lake Rd.,  Hopkins Crossing and the road in front of the Monteith Correctional Complex. Attention is also being paid to Oil Tank Rd.

“We’re doing the industrial park. We’re going to start that,” Mayor Delaurier reports. “We put some money aside to do the first steps to get that up and going and we put about $600,000 in the budget for that.”

Depending on what your property is worth, your Iroquois Falls taxes are up between $50 and $132 this year. The budget is up 3.9%.
