Sudbury city council holds its final meeting of 2013 on Tuesday, when it is expected to set municipal spending for 2014.
Councillors approved the $500 million budget in principle last week during a finance committee meeting.
But the 2.9 per cent tax hike won't be official until it passes a vote at tonight's meeting.
Council will also discuss a report on the new location of the farmer's market tonight.
