Residents indeed getting a tax hike

Dear Editor,

Rick Neufeldt's letter to the editor was very revealing and accurate as council is doing us no favours by forgoing a property tax increase in 2021.

Our overall bi-monthly utilities bill has sky-rocketed over the past five years in percentages well above annual inflation rates and adding an increase Fortis and Atco franchise fees makes it even worse.
As the great Ralph Klein once said we don’t have a revenue problem we have a spending problem.

I repeat what Rick said what kind of a shell game is the Town of Okotoks playing? I hope the councillors don’t injure themselves while patting themselves on their backs!
