Singh wants an early start to city’s budget talks
Budget talks in Kamloops could start earlier than usual this year.
Coun. Arjun Singh submitted a notice of motion this week, asking to set up a workshop to brainstorm ways to create a 2013 budget with no property-tax increase.
Singh said he likes the idea of having a workshop because it allows council to get ideas on the table — and, yes, that could include cuts to services — without being beholden to any of them.
“I don’t want to give anybody any unrealistic expectation that we’ll be able to hit any tax rate number or not,” he said. “It’s just a question of us sitting down and saying, ‘What ideas do we have?’”
