Taxes up in Projet budget

The Plante-Dorais administration has launched a budget with a hike in property tax and water tax. The mayor says the city needs the revenue to be able to fix up neglected infrastructure. There will be more money for transit although no specific funding to study the pink line.

Of course the opposition is dogpiling on.

Thursday morning there are also pieces about how the other municipalities on the island aren’t happy, business isn’t happy, Rosepatrie is not happy, rents will rise to cover the tax bill, and so on.
