Town Finances

As Councillor this term, I supported the elimination of forty percent the Town’s debt while increasing revenues and strengthening our reserves. This was accomplished while reducing the tax rate year by year. Collingwood now has a long-range financial roadmap, and with the right Council we can see our way clear to investing in the community providing more and better services, without burdening taxpayers.
We will have some important decisions and a responsible plan to make on some big ticket items in the not-too-distant-future – the Collingwood Terminals, the Waterfront Masterplan, and the imminent need for a multi-use facility. Let’s make sure we plan…SMART!
