London ratepayers are facing a 3.1 per cent property tax increase.
The 2014 draft budget was presented yesterday (Tuesday) at City hall.
The proposed increase translates into an extra 76-dollars on a home assessed at 208-thousand dollars.
Police and fire services, make up about one-third of the increase – and Mayor Joe Fontana wants those budgets reduced.
London city councillors will hold public consultations January 11, 13, 15 and February 10 in order to try and trim the budget.
Council is expected to pass the budget February 27th.
