Monday night Council will once again be faced with the decision to hire an Auditor General. Council can either go with the recommended candidate or they may chose to further study the idea of having this service done by an outside person.
A presentation will be made to several local building owners for their efforts in preserving some of Windsor’s historic buildings. Robin Easterbrock, Chair of the Windsor Heritage Committee along with Mayor Eddie Francis will present each with a plaque.
A communication to Windsor Council from Essex County Council informed the city that they will only contribute up to $300,000 to help host the 2013 International Children’s Games. County Council was being asked to contribute $600, 000.
Council will be asked to look at giving the Windsor Spitfires a tax break on their leased property at the WFCU Center in East Windsor. It’s recommended to Council that they enter into municipal capital facility agreements with all of its tenants. Under the current lease $23,800 is collected from the Spitfires, but $29,300 is paid to the province for education tax, and the City takes a loss. Under Administration’s recommendation, no property taxes would be collected, and no provincial education property taxes would have to be paid out, and the City would make money.
