The Cowichan Valley Regional District Board continues to make a push towards finalizing a budget for the next five years.

Vice-chair Lori Iannidinardo says they brought the budget down by over 300 thousand dollars at a recent meeting.

She says CVRD area residents could also see about a one per cent decrease in taxes.

Iannidinardo says a final decision on the budget could be made at a meeting on April 8th.
