District of Sicamous: Busch, Fred – council candidate

Council candidate: What’s your position on cutting costs as opposed to maintaining or increasing the municipal tax rate?

Council candidate: Fred Busch

Last year, council decided on a zero tax increase.

One of the consequences of this was that outside staff especially was seriously short on personnel. As a result, there was serious neglect to looking after some of the flowerbeds on district property.

If we want to present a community image of caring about our appearance, weeding flowerbeds around the district office should be a priority.

There also is a call for increased sidewalks for safety for seniors. Therefore, I can see no way to not have a reasonable tax increase for next year; a cost-of-living allowance at the very least.
