We Must Do Things Differently And We Must Do It Now

Hi Don, This is a great article and I agree wholeheartedly! One question though: we compete strongly with surrounding communities with lower tax rates but in some cases higher services. When people are choosing to move to the Greater SJ area, it is easy to see why they might choose Rothesay or Quispamsis over the City of Saint John when they can access things like recycling programs, newer recreation infrastructure and other services that impact their quality of life. Obviously upgrading these things takes investments; what is our plan to continue to upgrade and find innovative ways to deliver modern services so that we can stay competitive and attract newcomers and/or keep existing residents from relocating? Thanks, Sara
