District of Lake Country council will review its provisional budget next Tuesday, Dec. 10, with staff calling for a 4.32 per cent increase.

That includes 1.82 per cent is to cover the cost of five new RCMP officers approved last summer.

The average homeowner, whose house is assessed at $695,000, will pay $90 more per month.

Council can change what goes into the budget next week but more changes can also be made prior to its final adoption next spring.
