MATT MARCHAND FOR MAYOR CAMPAIGN ANNOUNCES FUNDAMENTAL SHIFT: ECONOMIC PLAN TO ALIGN CITY SPENDING WITH COMMUNITY PRIORITIES – WINDSOR 2022, BASEMENT FLOODING, INFRASTRUCTURE, AND COMMUNITY LIVABILITY

Posted on: October 3rd, 2018

 

Today, after consultation with the community, Mayoral Candidate Matt Marchand announced his economic plan to align City spending into community priorities.

The Marchand for Mayor Campaign represents a fundamental shift in current City policy by reprioritizing and reallocating resources with community priorities. “It’s time to match community needs with investment,” said Marchand.

Vision: Enhance the quality of life for citizens of Windsor for a more livable community by redirecting City spending to reflect community priorities.

Plan: Align Capital investment with community priorities.

 Action:

  1. Items to be Eliminated, Reduced, and Reallocated to Match Community Needs: $226.75 million over 10 years (see attached backgrounder).
  2. Implement a 1% tax increase.
  3. Accelerate implementation of the Sewer Master Plan for quicker relief of flooded basements from 10 to 6 years. There is a cost savings to doing this quicker, lessening the burden on taxpayers.

“This economic plan is a fundamental change from the status quo. We are going to match community priorities with investment,” said Marchand.

Vision & Plan: We’re looking for Volunteers and Contributors to be part of new ideas and direction. Action: Sign up for more information as well as donate right on our website at www.votemarchand.com.

This is the eighth in a series of policy platforms and ideas to be released between now and Election Day. The Marchand for Mayor Campaign is continuing to bring business, labour, and the community together to transform Windsor with new ideas and direction.
