Rest of the Tax Increase is on the way.

Well it is coming last night first reading was done on increasing our Water/Sewer rates by 4.5% and our garbage by an additional 3%.
Plus another first reading was also done on increasing our electrical rates by 6%.

Councilor Gallant gave a little speech about having keep pace with the rate of inflation, does anybody know of an area in Canada that saw that kind of inflation rate increase last year? If you do please let me know.

The establishment here don't mind, they can afford it, but the rest, especially those on fixed incomes, who keep on getting hammered in their pocket books by this mayor and council, how much more will they take from these guys before they say enough is enough and turf these guys?

TURF them. Now. Before it gets even wilder and out of control.

I hope that the last person to leave town doesn't forget to turn out the lights.

I do not understand this council all they have done is raise rates at a pace way greater than inflation.If we were getting something tangable I might be ok with it, but so far there has been nothing but cuts to services.It seems to me that if they would have left everything exactly the same then no services would have been cut and rates would only go up by the inflation rate which is about 2 %.Still waiting for something truly positive from this council.
We are also way past the deadline for the new hotel deadline where they said earlier that they had so much interest.It is so quiet out there about this I must assume there are no solid offers!!!
