Under Steve’s leadership, we entered 2019 in the strongest financial position in the City’s history. For three years in a row, Steve has delivered a budget that:
Lowers tax rates for both residential and commercial properties
Freezes the tax levy
Maintains a healthy fund balance
Includes appropriate funding in contingency for emergencies & contract settlements
Preserves Kingston’s excellent credit rating
…and he did this while still maintaining the City’s essential services, expanding quality of life initiatives, and preserving all filled, full-time positions!
