I agree with getting rid of the leaf collection, the City destroyed the grass stripping infront of my building last collection. I emailed about it and was told somebody would look into it and nobody got back to me, it's not worth the environmental effects

We need the increase in our taxes to reflect the needs of the community. There is no point in lowering the tax increase if it will come back to haunt us in years to come. One of the reasons we are in this position is because of the 0% increase in 2010.

More emphasis on proper road maintenance is needed. Residents should not have to take evasive action while driving simply to avoid the frequent bone jarring potholes. Too much has been spent on “vanity projects”. It’s time to get back to basics.

Please do not cancel capital investments meant to improve walkability downtown to try to cut the budget to some arbitrary number (eg 3%). Complete the Centennial Walk in 2019. Holding the line on infrastructure now just means more increases later.
