The councillor for Northwood says storm sewer work and the proposed roundabout on Victoria Avenue are two highlights for her in the 2019 city budget.
Shelby Ch’ng tells us the new traffic circle is already creating a lot of buzz in her ward,
Ch’ng says she “completely understands” many people are apprehensive about the idea since we aren’t used to roundabouts in Thunder Bay.
The Northwood councillor says based on social media chatter, the roundabout is getting mixed reviews.
She is hoping a ward meeting on Wednesday and a couple of information sessions will help clear up any concerns.
As for the proposed 2.95 per cent tax hike, Ch’ng says her goal is “to get the best bang for the tax dollar’ which doesn’t necessarily mean cuts or added spending.
