Year to date numbers show the RM of Portage is under in regard to their budget.

The Portage RM reeve says they're "bang on" with how the year was hoped to turn out financially. 


Mid-way through the fiscal year, the RM is almost 41 thousand dollars under their general budget. 


And with the favourable weather on his side, Reeve Jim Knight is planning ahead in terms of drainage work.  He'll focus on improving the drainage system for about two thousand acres of land south of the Trans-Canada highway.  The area has a difficult time draining during the spring season. 


He hopes the momentum doesn't shift, as he's seen a productive year so far -- this includes the cleaning and reshaping of ditches, as well new culverts put in.
