Council Meeting: December 5, 2016

Posted by on Dec 4, 2016 in Council Meetings

Just two Council Meetings remain in 2016 as we wrapped up our Budget deliberations last week. Based on the decisions that were made, next year’s projected municipal tax increase sits at 2.3%. That number is likely to go down as we are projecting a surplus this year and historically Council has chosen to use a portion of the surplus to pay for one-time projects in the following year’s budget. Taken alongside last year’s 0.4% reduction, we have averaged a tax increase under 1% the past two years while still moving ahead with some important projects. That’s something that I, and I believe my colleagues on Council, can all feel good about. Now, here’s a look at what’s on the Agenda for Monday’s meeting:

As I mentioned in last week’s post, we do continue on with our regular Council meetings during our Budget deliberations, of which we are about halfway through. A couple of highlights from Thursday’s meeting included approving funding for the Healing Garden which will recognize our community’s history with Residential Schools and allocating funding to ensure that the Art Gallery will be fully accessible to all residents. Budget deliberations will resume on Tuesday at 2 p.m.. In the meantime, here’s a look at what is on the Agenda for Monday’s meeting:

Hello everyone. Hope you are all enjoying the Fall weather. I’m going to try formatting this week’s post a bit differently as I learn how best to utilize our new Agenda software. I will include a link to the main Agenda Report for each of the items on the agenda this week. These reports have the proposed recommendations as well as some background on the issue being discussed. For additional background (e.g. reports, related documents), you will need to click on the Full Meeting Agenda and click on the links beneath each of the agenda items. So, here’s what on tap this week…
