Orillia Council Gives Birthday Party Money Request The Thumbs Down

$40,000 Request Denied, Money Better Spent Elsewhere

Orillia council doesn’t want to rain on the party, but feels 40 grand could be better spent. At a budget committee meeting yesterday, everyone around the table agreed to deny a Parks Department request for $40,000 to go towards the city’s year-long 150th Birthday Celebration next year. Another budget committee meeting today, which is scheduled to be the last before the final touches are put on the city’s budget.
