The Fort St. John Chamber of Commerce has released some recommendations for the City’s upcoming operating budget.

The recommendations include keeping taxes low, while also offering maximum services to the community.

The Chamber suggests rewarding city departments for successfully completing their objectives, while doing so under-budget. The Chamber says the reward would help prevent the “if we have the money, we must spend it” mentality.

The Chamber also recommends that the City review the 2009 Hamilton Report and that the City should encourage tax credits to downtown land owners to encourage them to improve thier buildings or begin construction on undeveloped lots.

Although the Chamber just recently submitted its recommendations to the City, it says it is willing to provide support to the City to help achieve its goals.
