The infrastructure levy proposed by eight councillors ahead of Wednesday’s 2018 budget vote has turned up the volume on the grumbling over the mayor’s two per cent tax promise.

It’s safe to expect a pile-on by councillors who oppose adding another 0.5 per cent to the already-planned two per cent property tax increase. Many have been on social media and radio programs dumping on the infrastructure tax proposal, even accusing some of the backers of political grandstanding before the next municipal election in October 2018.
