Poll shows rural residents support two-tier rates

The results of the citizens' survey can be found here.

Nearly two-thirds of rural residents would rather pay higher user fees than see their taxes go up to pay for facilities in neighbouring municipalities, according to a new citizens’ survey.

Sixty-four per cent of people polled by the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen preferred the idea of a two-tiered rate structure so those who use public facilities elsewhere pay their fair share.
