Chatham-Kent residents can have their say this week as community consultations begin for the 2015 budget.

Tonight’s open house will take place at the Dresden Arena from 4:30pm-6:30pm.

Administration and council members will be on hand to present the draft budget, which is recommending a 2.2% tax increase.

After the presentation, residents can ask questions about the budget to staff and councillors. There will be two more budget open houses in Ridgetown and Chatham later this week.
