That's a €7.2m increase on this years allocation.
Westmeath County Council has approved a €7.2 million increase to the 2020 budget.
This brings the total proposed expenditure of the local authority to €84.2 million next year.
Almost €1 million of the increase in the budget will be funded by a 6% hike to commercial rates.
However a grant scheme of 5% is being introduced that will protect smaller businesses from the charge up to a maximum of €250.
Meaning four in five will only see a 1% change in their bill.
The council house maintenance allocation, a new urban renewal fund of €200,000, and a budget of €25,000 for a climate action strategy are some of the scheme's set to benefit.
Over €15 million is being set aside for maintaining roads in the county.
While €1.5 million will be spent on litter management and street cleaning.
And €300,000 is being budgeted for Mullingar hosting the Fleadh - although some councillors suggested this allocation should be higher.
The budget was passed by a majority of 12 to seven.
