The Canadian Taxpayers Federation says Medicine Hat tops the list of municipal spenders.

The CTF released a report based on data published by the province and highlights the annual per person spending for municipal governments in Alberta.

In communities of 30,000 people or more, Medicine Hat spent just over $6200 per resident annually.

Lethbridge was number 3 on that list with spending just under $4000 yearly.

CTF Alberta Director Franco Terrazzano says municipal governments in Alberta are some of the biggest spenders in Canada.
