Council stumbles in final stretch of budget marathonDecember 1, 2023
We are at the mid way point of Saskatoon’s budget marathon. There has been lots of interesting discussions and presentations as we watch and listen with great anticipation. The unanimous decision to explore the Chamber’s recommendation of a Small Business Tax Sub Class is a win for our business community.
Ultimately, this process will come down to the math: every 1% in property tax rate costs $3M. To get the tax rate within the 20 year average (under 4%) Council needs to shave another $10M.
