All motions approved during the Jan. 21, 2019 General Committee meeting will be considered for final approval by Barrie City Council at its Jan. 28, 2019 meeting.

Barrie Air Show

City Councillors will consider initial approval of a motion that the Barrie Air Show be approved to return in 2019, and that $65,000 be allocated from the Tourism Reserve Fund to support the necessary staff required. The Downtown Barrie Business Association would consider launching a sponsorship campaign to help pay the remainder of the air show’s total $125,000 cost, should it be approved by Council. The City last hosted a June, 2017 Barrie Air Show, as part of its Canada 150 celebrations, which attracted more than 40,000 people to waterfront parks, nearby buildings and rooftops.


The Barrie Air Show is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the strong connection between Barrie and CFB Borden, as well as aviation science, the history of military aviation and technical training at Borden. The air show would be free and accessible for all, and would attract Barrie and area residents, visitors from the Greater Toronto Area and Central Ontario, along with aviation enthusiasts. A Canadian Forces Snowbirds representative will be in Barrie in late January for an advance meeting with key stakeholders.


2019 Business Plan

Councillors will consider initial approval of the 2019 Business Plan, which includes a proposed tax rate increase for the projected cost to maintain existing service levels for all municipal services, service partner funding requests, capital plan and new investments in services for 2019. In addition, the tax based budget includes a 1% tax rate increase for the Dedicated Infrastructure Renewal Fund as well as increases relating to legislated changes.


The 2019 Business Plan also includes proposed water and wastewater rate-based budgets, and proposed increases for water and sewer rates.
