Video of Public Press Conference on Hope Township LLRW Trust Fund Court Judgement porthoper July 14, 2016 Port Hopers for Fair Taxes 2 Comments Video of Ian Angus of Port Hopers for Fair Taxes explaining the Superior Court of Ontario Judgement on the Hope Township LLRW Trust Fund, at a public press conference held July 13, 2016 at the Lions Centre in #PortHope (Credit: Chris Pelletier of www.NorthumberlandView.ca) 2 Responses Catherine Dewar July 14, 2016 I think it is suspect to say that the cost of the “roads et al” in Ward 2 justifies any increases in taxes. On any given winter day, I leave my home on uncleared roads that are frequently still uncleared when I return home in the evening. This includes no salting/sanding when they are cleared. During ice storms that we often have each winter, there has been no attempt at salting or sanding and I have been stranded at home because of it. When I was able to get out during one such storm in order to get groceries, by the time I hit Port Hope proper, theroads there had been salted and sanded including side streets. Catherine Dewar July 14, 2016 How do we stop the Municipality from excess tax increases to Ward 2 (as in past year(s) and a corresponding reduction tax for Ward 1. The lack of impact of increases to Ward 2 that will be offset by the LLRW, may be a rude awakening if the Trust is not renewable at the 21 year mark and we then have to pay those huge tax bills?
