Thornhill homeowners will save ~ $300 annually in taxes thanks to 4 Thornhill Ratepayers Associations and Ward 1 Councilor Valerie Burke. We were there in support of them.
Councilor Burke worked on the issue since first elected in 2004. Grandview Area RA, German Mills RA, Bayview Glen RA and Thornhill Ward 1 RA had worked on it for more than a decade. We thanked them all on your behalf, and you can do so individually through Councilor Burkes’ email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you to Councilor Shore for forwarding the Minutes and for being very effective once he joined the initiative. His relentless arguments in favour of the City-wide funding that went till 2:30AM were greatly instrumental to the passing of the Motion. You can thank the Councilor individually at email@example.com
