Cities hold the line on spending in a tough year

March 7th, 2012 · 11 Comments

Sounds like cities have been listening to the grumbling they hear around them.

As I note here, most municipalities have kept their tax increases low. (I hear West Van is pushing for zero)

They know they need to, because they bear the brunt of complaint for the whole tax bill, of which city taxes are usually only a half. But when school taxes, Metro Vancouver taxes and TransLink taxes go up as well, it’s councils that usually get blamed.
