BACKGROUND:

During the city meeting in December, council discussed their 2020 budget.

Eliminating hanging flower baskets ($85,550) will help reduce a first proposed eight per cent property tax hike to 7.4 per cent in a first pass-through of the City of Terrace’s budget plan for 2020.

But plans to hire more city staffers, hire two more firefighters and one RCMP officer remain in place as city council held its first budget planning session Dec. 17.

“As we all know the community is facing a number of challenges that is requiring us to respond by providing more resources in some areas of our operations to ensure adequate service levels can be maintained,” says Heather Avison, chief administrative officer.
