Landlords will now be paying an additional $13 on top of their annual fees to the city, bringing the amount for residences with 1 to 20 units to $43 and for residences with 21 units and over to $37. According to Mayor Pauline Repp, the increase in fees will allow the rental program to adjust its staff to accommodate for an increased number of inspections. It was also decided to place on the ballot at the August 7, 2012 election the question as to whether the City should be allowed to sell, long-term lease or option to sell the property known as the West Quay Street parking lot to a qualified developer, and to remove the previously approved ballot proposal from the May 8, 2012 election. It was approved to have a plaque installed in Heritage Park on the Quay for Morris Snider, with all funds being raised by private donations for the purchase of the plaque and any dedication ceremony that may be subsequently planned.
