Fort Frances Budget Delayed

Town of Fort Frances is hoping to finalize its budget by the end of this month.

Council had planned to pass it at its meeting this past week.

Mayor Roy Avis says some recent changes impacting the assessed value of the Resolute Forest Products mill which is being closed played into a delay.

Avis says a previously announced tax increase of half-a-per cent may change, but not by much.
