Letter: Enough with fee increases in Kamloops

It seems our city fathers and mothers are bent on driving the seniors and pensioners from their hard-earned homes to cheap social housing

Editor:

Another increase in utility rates is arriving in 2023. Following that, I fear how much property tax increases will follow suit.

It seems our city fathers and mothers are bent on driving the seniors and pensioners from their hard-earned homes to cheap social housing.

Why doesn’t the city take some drastic measures to contain these increases, such as privatizing city-owned institutions like the museum, pools and theatres? When is the city going to stop printing and distributing fancy calendars, put a cap on councillors’ wages and limit large groups of councillors attending fancy conferences?

There are numerous ways to curb expenditures and redistribute the savings.

I will prepare to vote responsibly next month for my fellow seniors.
