Last night at the special Council meeting, the Budget was passed 6-4 by Council as presented by the administration without a single change. Despite the large turnout of residents on Monday night for the public hearings, Council did not go back to the administration to seek any alternatives in the allocations set forth in this document. The four voting against the budget were myself, Kevin Krischer (5th Ward), Larry Tanner (1st Ward) and Garry Gibbs (3rd Ward). Although the majority of the ward representatives voted against it, none of the at-large representatives rejected it.
The permanent closure of Fire Station #2 will be discussed at the next Safety/Environmental/Utilities Committee meeting on Wednesday, April 2 commencing at 6:00 p.m. This will be a public hearing so if you have comments, questions or suggestions you may come and speak.
