    The provincial government made changes to the Community Charter with respect to revenue policies and disclosure. The new requirements for 2009 and beyond require explicit objectives and policies in the Financial Plan about the budgeted proportion of City revenue to come from various revenue sources, the distribution of our property tax revenue among the various property classes, and the City's policies with regards to the use of permissive tax exemptions. At the April 22, 2009 Council meeting, council approved the April 15 report of the Director of Finance which outlined the new requirements. Council however, did not discuss or establish their objectives as required, so the objectives and policies have not yet been established. Appendix 1 attached entitled "Objectives and Policies for Revenue Sources, Tax Classes, and Permissive Tax Exemptions" contains a set of objectives and policies for Council to consider and discuss based on past practice and new Council initiatives.
