Hannah Wilkins started this petition to Prince George City Council

We the citizens of Prince George, are against City Council borrowing money to fix, update, and add to the City of Prince George assets. We are not against the fixing and improving of assets for Prince George, as maintenance and upkeep is important, however we think that the money should be found in the existing budget for these items and money should not be borrowed, adding to the already increased taxes of Prince George residents.

We request the Council to comb through the budget and “trim the fat” and perhaps consider selling assets such as buildings and land to better prioritize public facilities and existing parks. Properties such as the PG Playhouse, VIA Rail, Kinsmen Hall, Connaught Youth Centre, South FT George Community Centre, Ingledew park, and the old 4th Ave City Yard, are all some that could use review and be potentially be sold for revenue. . This revenue could fund the proposed 11 capital projects.

Additionally, we request that each city asset have a reserve fund that has a set amount put into it each year for building repairs and updates such as roofs, parking lots, and annual maintenance instead of borrowing money when repairs become necessary.
