AND WHEREAS Council has supported Councillor Christie’s mandate of promoting fiscal responsibility, endeavouring to ensure that there were no increases in Township expenses above the inflation rate, and reducing expenses where possible, and the Township, as a result of his lead, has had the lowest tax rate and is the best managed municipality in the West Parry Sound District;

v) RURAL ONTARIO MUNICIPAL ASSOCIATION

ONTARIO COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE FUND
