Owen Sound is suffering from years of annual budget increases that have resulted in Owen Sound being the high taxed municipality in Grey-Bruce.  As a result our population is migrating to Georgian Bluffs and Meaford where they can escape the high taxes while still enjoying all of the benefits that Owen Sound has to offer.  there are two questions that need to be answered.

  1. How can we get taxes back under control and what changes do you recommend the city take to ensure we get our taxes closer to those in our surrounding municipalities? 

  2. Should Council be have the ability to approve tax increases in excess of inflation? and,

  3. Should Council have the ability to spend $30 million on a new Art Gallery building or should such large expenditures be the subject of a referendum so everyone can vote on such a large expenditure?
