Harbour City residents are invited to the inaugural public meeting of the newly formed Nanaimo Ratepayers Association on Wednesday (May 29).
The association, a non-partisan group, hopes to provide alternatives to tax increases without sacrificing public safety or services.
Another focus is to encourage greater transparency and accountability at city hall by insisting in-camera agendas and minutes be made public once the genuine need for secrecy has passed.
A third objective is encouraging zero-based budgeting and taxpayer savings reviews.
The meeting takes place at the Kin Hut in Departure Bay starting at 7 p.m.
For more information, please contact Don Graham, association president, at 250-758-0667 or Jim Taylor, vice-president, at 250-753-6019.
