Yarmouth Town Council OK's Budget

The town of Yarmouth has given the green light on its budget which won't feature any new tax hikes. Mayor Phil Mooney says it's been a challenging stretch for the town over the past few years. However, he says staff and council were able to prioritize spending and balance the books. Mooney says a number of projects are planned for this year which include improvements to the downtown core, new sidewalks and a skateboard park.

The residential and commercial tax rate will hold steady for the third consecutive year. Council approved their budget blueprint during a meeting last night in Yarmouth.
