    Council Passes 2020 Budget- Improving Roadways & Moving Towards a New Recreation Facility

    February 18th, 2020
     
    The City of Martensville Council approved the 2020 Budget at the February 18 Council Meeting. Prioritizing capital projects and identifying the wants and needs of the community were the focus of budget meetings over the past number of months.
     
    “City of Martensville Administration has presented a balanced budget that aligns with Council’spriorities and enhances the services and amenities in Martensville,” says Mayor Kent Muench.“We are investing just over $3 million in capital projects including $1,500,000 in roadways thanks, in part, to the Federal Gas Tax Fund Program. We are also partnering with the RM ofCorman Park and the City of Warman to pave Township Road 384 (Martensville Main Street extension) east to Highway 11. Another significant project for the City includes further enhancements to the new outdoor rink at the Sports Centre. We will be adding a warmup building adjacent to the rink as well as hard surfacing the arena base (asphalt). This will accommodate summer activities. Council also continues to develop the Kinsmen Park Master Plan through pathway paving for 2020”
     
    2020 will also be an exciting year as the City continues to invest in a future recreation facility for the residents of Martensville and the region. The location for the new facility will be selected and publicized in the coming months and the City will be applying for a significant infrastructure grant to assist with the funding of the new facility. 
     
    The City has budgeted for a 1.9% increase in total property tax revenue after assessment growth. As a result, the average homeowner in Martensville will see an increase to their municipal property tax levy of approximately $38.00 per year or $3.17 per month for those on TIPPS, an increase of 1.85%. Increases will affect all properties differently dependent on assessment values. The actual 2020 mill rate will be reviewed and set in the coming months after the release of the provincial budget in March.
