When I ran for Mayor in the last municipal election a lot of the talk was about taxes. Now we have the Council ready to hike taxes—again.
How can the City Council afford to pay huge settlements (possibly close to a half milliion dollars) yet still consider raising taxes?
I agree with the Community Action Group and their plea. This is a group of highly respected business people and their opinion matters.
The answer is simple, yet this Council does not get it. It’s time to “live within our means” and don’t spend more than you take in. It’s a term called “Revenue Based Budgeting” and it works.
It’s a slap in the face to the people of Cornwall to have money stashed away for these settlements and then go to the taxpayer to foot
