budget cycle: The proposed budget is nearly 13 million more than had been approved in principle by council last year as part of the two-year budget cycle, according to The Chronicle Herald. Really, the major cost is the increase in the operation cost, said Stuebing, who took over the department in September. Part of the good news was that council voted to accept the proposed 2018-19 budget that included 68 million in wages and benefits. It's overtime, staff replacing those who are training. The recruiting, hiring and training drive has been precipitated by a recommendation that each fire truck should have four firefighters on board, and by a recent spate of retirements. The department has hired 40 career firefighters to help staff its 51 fire stations that protect more than 400,000 people in a 5,577-square-kilometre area. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
