Perth’s town treasurer made a presentation before a special meeting of town council on Wednesday, Aug. 21 about the town’s finances.

“This is like a first draft,” said Burns in speaking about the town’s strategic asset management policy. “We have to tie it all to demographic projections,” as well as incorporating it into the budget process. There are also vulnerabilities that have to be taken into account, such as climate change, which Burns admitted “was a pretty broad” theme to cover off.
