City Council looking to tackle road deficits

Council accepted a recommendation from administration calling for an increase in property taxes to fix our roads.  The recommendation would increase taxes by an average 2.88 percent over the next 3 years.  Councillor Andrew Foulds says its time to take our roads seriously and council needs to be aggressive and show some courage and vision to make Thunder Bay a city that our kids can be proud of.  An amendment to cap the tax increase at 2.5 percent was defeated 6-5.
