Budget 2019: Savings and Re-aligments

Budget 2019: Savings and Re-aligments

I don't think it is often possible for an organisation to do more in some service areas while also cutting taxes. And it certainly shouldn't be expected to happen year-over-year. Eventually you get to a point where you at least need to raise taxes enough to keep up with inflation.

Vehicles are interesting. Some people love them. Some hate them. Some are like me: we tolerate them because we need transportation for work and play. Most of us spend a lot of money on them.
