Sarnia City Council decided on June 19, 2017 to extend consultations over the summer on two important issues: a proposal to impose the transit levy on properties that don’t have access to conventional bus services, and a proposed bylaw that would regulate trees located on private properties.

Residents wanting to comment on the transit levy now have until August 4 to complete the survey: http://clerks.smartsarnia.com/transit-service-property-taxation/. Comments can also be shared by emailing transittax@sarnia.ca or calling 519-332-0330. A staff report and final recommendations will be presented to Council on September 11.

Residents wanting to comment on the tree bylaw now have until October 1 to complete the survey: http://planning.smartsarnia.com/tree-by-law-questionnaire/ . Comments can be emailed to trees@sarnia.ca. Council will review the draft bylaw at their meeting on October 23.
