Residents of Steinbach can expect a zero increase in property taxes this year.Mayor Chris Goertzen says council is recommending a balanced budget with no change in mil rate. That was the major piece of business out of the winter study session last weekend. He cautions council may not be able to hold the line on taxes in future years due to the pressures to provide high quality services. As for capital projects this year, Mayor Goertzen says council is committed to completing expansion of the Firehall and rebuilding 1st Street between Reimer and Friesen. And what about all those grant requests received by council. Mayor Goertzen tells us we'll have to wait for upcoming council meetings when those recommendations will come forward.
