Not a fan of a $2.2 million deficit

Posted on by vicki.tyler

A $2.2 million dollar deficit is being projected for the city’s year end finances. Budget Chief Tanya Vrebosch says part of that is because of the tax increase being too low this year. Also mentioned was the first couple of winter months of 2014 providing harsh conditions, forcing that section of the budget to go over, among other things.
Council has tough decisions to make, so many projects with so little money becomes an intricate balancing act.
I cringe with the thought of paying more in taxes, no matter how minimal. I know my family is always looking at ways to cut corners, to try and save money. I don’t know many people that get enough of a wage increase to continue to cover the rising cost of gas, food, heat, and other necessities, let alone tax increases.
Obviously winter road conditions are a concern to any resident that travels, so it is a need rather than a want. As a taxpaying citizen of North Bay my priorities differ from that of other residents. I just feel like maybe some of our priorities as a city may need to be re-evaluated, like we are doing in our own homes to try to keep up.

Sound system upgrades on the way to Memorial Gardens

Posted on by richard.coffin

Memorial Gardens BattalionIt should be easier to hear who’s scoring for the North Bay Battalion this year. City Council approved to spend $377,000 on revamping the sound system at Memorial Gardens. A staff report says the contract is for $287,000 while an additional $90,000, not included in the initial contract, is for design services and additional work required as part of the new audio system. All but one councillor was in favour of this report. Councillor Mark King says he couldn’t support this motion considering they will take money away from other projects to complete this one. He says the John St. Bridge project has been the sacred cow for the last number of capital changes. Basically the money that was set aside for that bridge is being used in all these other places.”
