The Garbage Rebate is Back!

 

Many hours of research, letter writing, phone calls, meetings, survey results ,Council Presentations and support from the Condo Community
was instrumental in the positive vote at City Council last night to reinstate the Garbage Rebate for the present time.
Thank you all for a well-done effort!

Dawna Matthews, President




2018 Garbage Rebate Update!, we need your help again.

We need to let City Council know that condominium homeowners will not stand by while we pay taxes for services that we do not receive.
The only way that the City of Regina is going to change its course is if it hears from its residents that the status quo is unacceptable.

On Oct. 31, 2018 we received the following information:

• It was decided that the response to Council Motion MN18-6 regarding reinstatement of the condo rebate would be incorporated into the Curbside Waste Services Funding Policy Report that was anticipated to go to Council in October. This eliminated the separate report regarding the condo rebate that was scheduled for November.
• The Curbside Waste Services Funding Policy Report was deferred to the first quarter of 2019, essentially deferring the response to the condo rebate until then.

As a result of these changes, the current 2019 Proposed Operating Budget has no provision for reinstatement of the condo rebate. City Council will be provided an update as to the status of the condo rebate discussion and may wish to discuss options for reinstatement as part of budget deliberations at the December 10, 2018 City Council meeting.

We wish to thank Norm Brown for his continued work on this cause.

I have again asked to speak to City Council at their December 10th Budget meeting (5:30 p.m. at Henry Baker Hall) regarding the Condominium Waste Rebate. Attached is a copy of my presentation. I encourage as many people as possible to attend to show support for the reinstatement off the rebate.

 

Can we fill the house again and let Council know that this is not acceptable?
