The Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako passed its 2015 annual report last week. It managed a surplus last year of over $631,000 with a revenue of over $12.6 million.
Considering the closing of a mine, and the uncertain future of Huckleberry, Chair Bill Miller says there’s a positive outlook.
“There’s been downturns in the economy, but overall we’ve met those challenges with good growth numbers. Our assessments are only down by one per cent.”
They made a debt payment of over $592,000 last year.
“In terms of provincial debt equity ratio…we don’t owe a lot of money,” says Miller.
The District’s revenues were up $1.2 million in 2015 over 2014.
