What is the connection to the City's Strategic Plan?

As part of the City’s 2016-2021 Strategic Plan, the objective to evaluate and consider alternate and new revenue sources was identified.  The diversification of City revenue sources allows for reduced reliance on volatile property values; prevents a disproportionate shift of the tax burden to higher valued residential and or non-residential property; and it promotes greater equity and fairness in that all residents and consumers of municipal services are sharing in the costs for the services.
