    If the truth be known I don’t really like animals that much, horses excluded. But i do understand your point.

    The upgrades to Speedsville will probably be needed to service the huge new subdivisions slated to be built north of Beaverdale right up to Kossuth Rd.

    Allan,

    Well written as usual, but it is actually 71 million needed for repairing the fresh water and sewage pipes. As those footing the bill,we should be so “lucky” as it be only 31 million

    I have to agree that the speedsville project is not a major concern but then again i do not use it very often but the numbers that Jan say’s are needed to fix the pipes???Yipes! Maybe the council should cancel the pre meeting dinners.

    There is no doubt we need to upgrade our aging infrastructure, and I agree that should be a priority.

    I, for one, am not surprised at a City tax increase of 4.6% (?)…. Council has held tax increases for 9 straight years at near 0% by using reserve funds. Now it is time to pay the piper ….

    I was unaware that we had that low of a tax increase, so I am not that bothered by this raise, it has to be done it has to be done.

    The problem is not so much the present proposed tax increase, it is the fact that in spite of that proposed increase, Council is still looking for $153-million IT DOESN’T HAVE.
    And, in spite of the fact that according to Jan Liggett (see post above) $71-million is needed to upgrade leaking water and sewer pipes.
    So, at the same time as those pipes are leaking, Karl Kiefer is proposing a major multi-use arena-convention-aquatics centre for Cambridge – at the same time as Council has to borrow over $5-million for basic infrastructure. THAT IS THE PROBLEM!!!
