Need To Know: Homelessness, Agribition, Light The Lights


City Administration's Plan To End Homelessness

If a city administration report to end homelessness was to be passed by council, the mill rate would see an increase of more than 20 per cent next year.

Property taxes would rise a total of 21.73 per cent in 2023 and 4.24 per cent in 2024.

That would mean the average home valued at $315,000 would be paying $40.59 more per month in 2023 and $11.90 more per month in 2024.

According to the report, the estimated cost to fund the motion is $98 million in capital investment and approximately $25 million in annual operating costs.
