Dryden Residents Pushing For Zero Tax Increase

The City of Dryden is out with its 2014 budget.

The 25.3-million dollar budget follows 4-million dollars in savings found by staff, including 900-thousand dollars in department cost savings.

Chief Administrative Officer Andre Larabie says they did their best to reduce operating costs.

However, residents attending a public meeting last night demanded Larabie to go back to the table and find more savings.

They were quite vocal on a zero percent increase.
