Council Meeting: January 23, 2017

Posted by on Jan 22, 2017 in Council Meetings

Here’s my weekly look at what is on the proposed agenda for the coming week’s meeting. It’s worth noting that at last week’s meeting Council approved a recommendation that would see the start time for Council meetings moved back to a later time beginning in November 2017 (the start of the next Council’s term). An exact time will be determined in the months to come. For now, meetings will continue at their regular Monday 2 p.m. start time.

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:
