Give your input regarding the spending of Cortes property tax dollars for the 2011 Strathcona Regional District budget. As far as I am aware this is the first year that the Regional District, at my request, is going to be giving a community budget presentation. You will learn where property tax dollars have been spent in the past, what tax services the SRD provides for Cortes Island, and projected spending for next year. We are at the very beginning of budget deliberations for the 2011 tax year, and I want your input. If you are interested in Gas Tax spending on green house gas reduction projects, this is also a time to give some input and to understand the larger financial picture that those funds are part of. SRD staff (Chief Administrative Officer - Brian Reardon, Chief Financial Officer – Dawn Christiansen, Russ Hotsenpillar – Manager Community Services, & Beth Rees – Manger of Planning and Parks) and I will all be there to present information, answer questions and receive your feedback. Please come and contribute constructively to the spending of your tax dollars.
In Gratitude, Noba Anderson
