Final City Council Meeting for outgoing Members tonight


The outgoing Fort St. John City Council holds its final meeting today.

One of the items on the agenda is a 2009 Tax Ratio Review presentation from city staff.

Recall last week the Stategic Planning and Finance Committee, asked staff to prepare a report regarding the proposed appointment of a Property Tax Policy Review Commissioner, to investigate business community concerns regarding the economic impact of the Cities’ taxation policy.

Council will consider a recommendation from City Manager Diane Hunter, to hire the Independent Commissioner, using grants from the Northern Development Initiative, to cover the cost.

If council approves the recommendation it is hoped the newly elected council will have a full report from the Commissioner, by March first of next year.
