Saint John Mayor Confident Tax Rate Won't Rise

The city manager will be providing the mayor and council with the prospective numbers for Saint John's year end budget tonight. Mayor Ivan Court says the goal is to maintain, or lower, the tax rate for next year.

Court says he is going to be optimistic about holding the tax rate. He says between the operating and capital budgets, all of the projects the city plans on having completed by years-end fall within the two. The year end numbers are up for discussion at tonight's council meeting.
