Regina city council will be meeting again this evening to discuss changes to the city's 2017 budget.
Council held a special meeting last week to hear from residents on some of the proposed changes to the budget. The meeting lasted for more than three hours, but in the end council did not make any decisions. Instead, a vote on the budget was postponed until this week to give city councilors more time to consider their options.
Some of the changes for the proposed budget include the largest property tax increase in over a decade, a tax increase for Regina international airport, a half a million dollar cut to the city's police budget, reduced transit service and the closure of Regina’s only lawn bowling green.
