Trail has secured expert opinion and the boundary expansion is in the best interests of the City’s residents and beyond.
So says CAO David Perehudoff as the City makes pro-active moves to educate the public on the list of benefits of taking over Area A.
Teck’s tax rate would reduce to 55%, but Perehudoff says that’s still a good deal in the long term.
Council will be at the opening Trail Market of the season Friday to inform the public ahead of a July 7th deadline for people to formally oppose the expansion.
The City admits gaps in public education contributed to a recent petition that has forced a referendum on the proposed pedestrian pipe bridge.
