Increased Revenue Sharing will Provide Relief for Municipalities
SARM is pleased that the province has decided to address the urgent need of municipalities for additional Revenue Sharing to help address the rapidly growing infrastructure deficit.
For a number of years RMs across Saskatchewan have been struggling to maintain their municipal infrastructure while faced with rapidly increasing costs.
The decision to increase the Revenue Sharing Pool by an additional 8% over the 7% announced in the recent budget will allow many municipalities to take another look at their budgets and maintain services while, in some cases, holding the line or even rolling back mill rates.
“The 15% increase in Revenue sharing is good news for RMs,” said SARM President David Marit.
