The Town of Clarenville has adopted its 2014 budget — with no tax increases in any residential or commercial categories.
The $9.45 million budget was presented at a regular council meeting Dec. 17. The budget is up this year, an increase of about five per cent over last year's.
While much of the increase is attributed to growth, the town will see an additional $90,000 to its municipal operating grant, which is provided by the provincial government.
Budget highlights included a slight increase in the honorarium given to volunteer firefighters, and money set aside for a feasibility study on a swimming pool.
