Our greatest priority is to present your voice to all levels of government. During the course of 2019, your BC advocacy team met with local Mayors, MLAs, and Ministers and made 5 major submissions to the province on issues that impact you.
To keep you up to date on where we've been, here is a recap of our meetings in 2019.
Not Pictured: Mayor Bauer, Keremeos; Mayor Haynes, District of Saanich; Mayor Hurley, Burnaby; Mayor Cumming, Vernon.
Some of the major priorities brought to their attention:
- Lowering your property tax bill
- Reducing red tape (e.g. simplifying the permitting process)
- Reintroducing the municipal business vote, so your business gets a say even if you live in a different municipalities
- Limiting operating spending (e.g. sharing resources with neighboring municipalities, finding internal efficiencies)
