Redcliff Council briefs
Auditor signs off on Town finances
Auditor Derek Taylor of KPMG LLP gave Redcliff a passing grade on its finances for the 2015 year at last Monday’s council meeting. Overall Redcliff took in about $2 million more in revenues last year over 2014 despite a stumbling economy. Much of this due to grants received for major infrastructure projects. The Town had an overall operating surplus of $1,141,936.
Thanks to the infrastructure investments in the community last year the town now has capital assets of over $87 million, (up $10 million from the year before).
Redcliff also has about $9,881,219 in unrestricted surplus.
