The City of Ottawa is facing a $41 M deficit. This could mean cuts to important city services that we all depend upon, and others that address the needs of the most vulnerable in our community. The annual property tax increase has shrunk every year since 2011 (2.45% to 1.75%). This has meant a tighter budget each year amidst rising costs and financial pressures.
