Council halves proposed cuts

The possibility of getting the 2011 tax-rate increase as low was four per cent has gone out the window after council decided yesterday to decrease across-the-board cuts.

The possibility of getting the 2011 tax-rate increase as low was four per cent has gone out the window after council decided yesterday to decrease across-the-board cuts.

During the budget-cuts discussion in November, Mayor Naheed Nenshi proposed that administration find a total of $8 million in cuts to all departments that would equal an overall one per cent tax-rate decrease.

It was decided yesterday that number would be reduced from $8 million, making a four per cent increase unlikely.
