Week ahead: Let’s Talk Taxes, Council meeting, Land Use Committee (2621 St. Johns)
“Port Moody’s annual five-year financial planning process is a major undertaking, and the results impact every resident and business in the city. Mayor and Council want to hear what you think about the proposed budget. Typically, our budget consultation takes place in January or February. For 2016, however, we’re getting a jump start on the process so that Council has enough time to consider all the feedback we receive.”
The meeting will be live-streamed.
Tax increase currently under consideration is 4.38%.
