What choices did we collectively, through city council make in the 2013 City of London budget?
There are 9 general programs that City of London property taxes support:
Parks Recreation & Neighbourhood Services
Planning & Development Services
Social & Health Services
Corporate Operational & Council Services
In the drive towards a zero percent increase, the only program line item with any significant reduction was Social & Health Services.
There was the first choice – hold 8 programs at zero or increase them, at the cost of reducing social and health services.
More to come..
