No public input at first Regina budget meeting

In a rare move, Monday night's executive committee meeting was open for submissions, giving anyone the chance to weigh in on Regina’s proposed budget.
However, no one took advantage of the opportunity.
City administration presented Regina's budget to the committee, outlining the details of the $566 million dollar plan, which would see a 4.45 per cent property tax increase -- the biggest jump in more than a decade.
Still, there were no scheduled delegations at the meeting and no councillors offered questions.
They voted to table the budget until Feb. 19, when the public will have another chance to weigh in at a special council meeting,
Following that meeting, council will vote on the proposed budget.
