City Seeks Public Input on Tax and Utility Affordability Programs for Low-Income Households
The City of Regina is seeking input from residents on potential options to improve affordability for low-income property taxpayers and water utility customers.
A number of municipalities across Canada have implemented affordability programs to assist low-income households. Regina is considering similar program options and is looking to gauge the level of public support in a property tax and utility affordability survey, which launched today on Be Heard Regina.
“Regina strives to be an inclusive, attractive and sustainable community where residents of all income levels can thrive,” says Mayor Sandra Masters. “We want to address affordability in a meaningful way, and we encourage all Regina residents to share their feedback on program options and their level of support for affordability programs by taking the survey.”
The Property Tax & Utility Affordability Survey is open to all residents. Feedback from the survey will be used to inform two separate Council reports on property tax and water utility affordability that are scheduled for this fall.
Visit beheard.regina.ca and participate before June 30. If you are unable to complete the survey online, please contact Service Regina at 306-777-7000 for alternate options.
