Castlegar city council is encouraging residents to attend an open house Tuesday night to see how their tax dollars will be spent.
Members of the public can get a close look at the 2015 budget that proposes a 3.1% municipal tax increase or $56 extra dollars a year for residents.
Councillor Florio Vasilikakis says they want to know what home owners think from 4-30 till 7-30 pm.
Big budget items include major renovations to Columbia Avenue and a $125,000 off-leash dog park.
Heading into last November’s election Castlegar council was criticized by some members of the public for frivolous spending on certain community projects.
