Salmon Arm is doing relatively well financially as growth picks up. Residents have been clear about the services they value and the city has controlled costs while maintaining those services. Proposed infrastructure is responsible (without capital tax increases) and annual property tax increases have been moderate. I will maintain that approach.
I would support a renewed conversation on the balance of services, tax rates and ratios.
I want less reliance on the Alternate Approval Process for authorizing tax expenditures whenever possible.
