Media Release: Chamber to Present Views on City Budget
THUNDER BAY, ON, January 10, 2019
The Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce will be making a deputation to City Council tonight regarding the 2019 City Budget. The meeting will begin at 6:30pm at City Hall.
“Our members are quite concerned about the proposed 3.25% tax levy increase,” says Charla Robinson, President of the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce. “Over the past 8 years, taxes collected by the City have risen from $157 million to this year’s proposed $196 million, an increase of nearly 25%. We are imploring City Council to find reductions to bring the total tax funded spending increase to no more than 2% this year. In addition, we will be asking Council to undertake a Service & Spending Review to help to reduce expenses in future years.”
This is a Municipal Issue.
