At City Council tonight a report from the CAO (pictured) suggested a levy in taxes of 3.08 per cent.
This was based on numbers looked at like the Consumer Price Index, growth or lack of growth in the community, and Harvard and other thinktanks.
This is not what is the actual tax levy because that has to be approved by council first.
The report also showed a negative growth in the city by 1.38 per cent.
There is currently at tax gap of over $3-Million.
WSIB payments due to cancer and other work related ailments in the community have amounted to $2.5 Million also in the report.
Councillor Ross Romano commented that the city residents have felt taxed enough and that our commercial taxes are some of the highest in the province.
