The Town runs a small Community Support Grant program annually for local clubs, associations, societies and other causes, usually budgeting around $8- $10,000 per year from taxation for that purpose. Do you have any advice for the Town if greater or more competitive need from this program becomes evident?

Question Title

* 11. Recreation services are amongst our most visible municipal services.  What one area would you most like to see changes or improvements in?

Question Title

* 12. "Major infrastructure projects (e.g. sewer, water, roads, buildings) don't always attract major public support in terms of the costs involved but are often a necessity to avoid critical failures or falling behind in the community's ability to support new growth."  Do you agree with this statement?

Question Title

Question Title

* 17. Following on from previous questions, are there specific areas of municipal services that you believe should be reduced or cut in terms of their level of service to better keep costs down (in the face of significant inflationary movement in the cost of goods and services)?

Question Title

* 18. Please use this space to identify one project or issue close to your heart that you believe the Town (and taxpayer) should initiate, advocate for or support over the next term.  If you mentioned it before in an earlier response, please repeat it again here.

Question Title

* 19. The Town may conduct further survey research depending on the response to this higher level survey and further discussion by Council at strategic planning sessions.  If there is something specific that you would like to see the Town survey the community on, please do provide any suggestions here.
