The news should start trickling out soon tomorrow morning about exactly what the news is when it comes to the city’s much anticipated/dreaded shared-services review. It’s being presented internally over the next two days, though I can’t imagine the news will stay internal for long.
As I’ve reported previously, the city is looking at having to trim up to $50 million in cost, depending on how low they want to limbo on that tax increase. Zero would mean some serious knee-bending.
The interesting thing to watch will be whether there is any difference in how the city handles a maor budget crisis compared to how the province has been handling theirs. I’m not hinting here. I have no clue, so I’ll have to wait and see like everyone else.
