Having been a small business owner and Executive Director of the St Norbert BIZ, I am very engaged in supporting local business. Since elected, I’ve been working with the local businesses on Pembina, University Crescent, and Centre Street to assist with any City issues they may be having (permits, approvals, signage, etc.) I’ve also hosted two meet and greets and am in the planning stages of a fall meet and greet.
I have also supported an annual reduction of the business tax during each budget process with the goal to ultimately see the business tax eliminated. I welcome any discussion owners may want to bring forward.
I encourage local businesses to fill out the survey on this page and tell me what ISSUES or PROJECTS in Bridgwater Centre, Pembina Highway and Fort Garry Industrial area that YOU want to see ACTION on in next four years. I will provide a summary of submissions and what I’ve heard ‘at the door’ for you to review in early October.
