Shelburne Council is looking to save some money for a rainy day in its upcoming budget process.
Council has asked staff to prepare a draft operating budget to include an overall tax levy increase not to exceed 8 per cent.
They also asked staff that the draft operating budget include two levies.
The first being a 2.88 per cent levy, or roughly $200,562, to be placed in a reserve for Emergency Services Accommodations.
The second levy being 2 per cent, or $139,100, for future parks and recreation capital infrastructure projects.
Mayor Wade Mills says it's going to be a difficult budget season with a number of capital projects on the horizon.
However, he's confident this year will go smooth now that the new council has gone through one budget season.
