City of Merritt's top to bottom review of service levels underway.
Director of Finance Sheila Thiessen says the review is in response to the significant drop in tax revenue forecasted in 2018, due to the shutdown of Tolko's Merritt sawmill.
The hope is to discover lost revenue.
"We're taking a good look at our services, and how we allocate costs. We'll also be taking a hard look at user fees, and see if changes are necessary."
The City of Merritt stands to lose as much as $500,000 a year in tax revenue because of the Tolko shutdown starting in 2018.
