Barrie's 2020 budget will feature a tax hike

BARRIE CITY HALL

 Barrie city councillors, and staff, are already close to finalizing the 2020 City of Barrie budget process, with all indications pointing to a significant tax hike for homeowners.
    The draft budget was tabled last night, with a proposed 3.52 percent tax increase.
   Part of that is increased spending in general, part for an infrastructure renewal fund, and part blamed on provincial downloading.
   Aside from property tax hikes, you'll be expected to pay more for water and wastewater bills, likely a similar increase.
      It's expected the city budget, will  be passed early in December.
