What do you get for 8 cents of your tax dollar? Excellent Question! The City of Brooks operates all the things within in the community on only 8 cents of your tax dollar. The vast majority, 92 cents of every tax dollar, is spent by the Provincial and Federal Governments. What is the source of 8 cent City of Brooks Tax? Another excellent Question! The vast, vast majority comes from the local residential and commercial tax assessment. The Provincial and Federal Governments have many, many revenue sources but not municipalities.
So what do you get for your 8 cents? Wow, do you ask Great Questions!!
What are you talking about? Yes sir, this is the weekend to celebrate Canada Day for more than one day.
Have you been to Scandia, Bassano, Tilley, Rosemary, or Brooks on Canada Day?? Why Not?
In Brooks, have you gone for a great Pancake Breakfast at the Brooks and District Museum? Thousands do! Have you spent a day in the community of Rosemary with their extravaganza of events? The mud bog and fireworks are famous. Have you been to the main street of Tilley on Canada Day? There is the parade and zillions of activities all day long. Bassano has a great entertainment event the night before Canada Day on June 30th.
Guess what folks. This is the year to do Canada Day celebrations in your community and others because it is Canada Day Weekend in the County of Newell. Starting Saturday June 30th Bassano is doing sports events (all weekend ) with a great concert Saturday night. Rosemary is doing a whole incredible day of activities on Saturday. Brooks and Tilley host events on Sunday July 1st with morning and afternoon events followed by fireworks at night.
Be a tourist in your town is a great idea BUT this weekend you can be a tourist in more than one community, how about 5, as you celebrate……
The City of Brooks will be replacing the street banners mounted on the street lights throughout the city in the near future. Staff and Council are entertaining new designs for the new banners. In terms of design, what do you think would look attractive on the new banners?
What is your your opinion on City signage. Signage is a complicated problem because it is difficult to determine what is an acceptable amount of signage along our streets. Without any signage, finding key landmarks such as the Lakeside Leisure Centre or the Brooks & District Museum may be challenging for tourist. However without any restrictions, signage becomes so popular that it overcrowds our streets, creating redundancy and even worse distracting drivers, creating a liability for us all. What should and should not be allowed to be posted?
