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