Consultations continue as Torontonians are asked to comment on new revenue tools
  
The City of Toronto is holding its next meeting in a series of public consultations asking Torontonians about the possible new revenue tool options under the City of Toronto Act. The public is invited to the next consultation on Tuesday, May 15 at Etobicoke Collegiate Institute, 86 Montgomery Rd. from 7 to 9 p.m. to share their ideas.

Revenue tool options available to the City include applying a new alcohol or tobacco sales tax, vehicle ownership tax, land transfer tax and others that could be directed to fund City-building initiatives and service improvements such as transportation, parks and recreation, culture and climate change.

There are two additional opportunities for public involvement. Consultations are from 7 to 9 p.m. as follows:

Thursday, May 17 - Memorial Hall, 5100 Yonge St. (below the North York Public Library)

Wednesday, May 23 - Scarborough Civic Centre, 150 Borough Dr.

Participants can register in advance by calling Access Toronto at 416-338-0338. TTY 416-338-0889.

The public can also send their comments to Revenue Tools, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W., 5th Floor, East Tower, Toronto, ON, M5H 2N2 or e-mail revenuetools@toronto.ca.

For further information about the consultation and background information, visit http://www.toronto.ca/finance/revenue_tools.htm.

Feedback received from consultations will be included in a report going to the Executive Committee in June 2007.
