In response to the issues raised by business owners over Sault Ste. Marie’s industrial tax rates, city councillors Marchy Bruni and Frank Fata have stated that something has to change.
There is a worry amongst business owners and average citizens alike that, in order to make the Sault a viable option for future business development and to prevent youth migration, small and large scale industrial tax rates must be brought down to a more realistic rate.
However, the question remains – can this be done without burdening municipal taxpayers or those in other tax classes? Can it be done without cutting needed services and jobs in our city?
Bruni and Fata have different answers to that question, but they both believe it can be achieved with efficiency so long as the will of a future council is on board.
