Hotel tax changes on council agenda

Changes to the city’s accommodation tax program are inching toward reality as council is expected to hear a report from an exploratory committee during Tuesday’s council meeting.

The current bylaw has been under review, with a committee exploring the possibility of changing the criteria to allow funding for capital projects and facility upgrades, such as work to the Keystone Centre.

Council will also hear from members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees about their stance on public-private partnership projects (P3). The union urges municipalities to take “a cautious stand, fully examine the evidence, and ask the right questions before considering entering into a P3,” a union report reads.

Engineering and water services will also table a report that will spell out guidelines that will apply to P3 capital projects in Brandon under $20 million.

Also on the agenda, Brandon Heating and Plumbing is expected to be awarded a $430,000 contract to provide the heating upgrade to the city’s Material Recovery Facility.

The motion to rezone property located at 1660 34th St. from a development reserve land to single-family and open-space land will go through second reading.

A bylaw to amend bylaw

No. 7062 to establish Pacific Avenue between 18th and 26th Streets will be read for the first time.

Council meets at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday at city hall.
