It will also include a segment at the end of each show where I answer resident’s questions. First show airs this Saturday at 10:00pm.Ever wonder what goes on in the City's Water and Wastewater facilities, or what the City is doing to ensure our drinking water is safe and our dike system is upgraded to respond to withstand extreme weather events? Go "BEHIND THE SCENES" with Mayor Kevin Davis by tuning in to his new show launching this Saturday at 10pm on @RogersTV20. Details: brantford.ca/BehindtheScenes ...
Perhaps, a better option would be to look at affordability in the community for everyday items and reducing taxes, vs just building more housing. We have enough affordable housing for our cities size.
The problem is not affordable housing but over taxation to local landlords the city is driving landlords out of business..this story is incomplete and gives only one perspective to the housing dilemma plus there are too tenant abuses with current system ..drugs and criminality..property vandalism ..etc.
My solution is to place a moratorium on taxing mohawks until you can prove you have that right on the haldimand, Then Off load the tax sale houses in your inventory to our Mohawk Housing Trust, and we rent them back out at an affordable rate, And the values of the properties be balanced against the acknowledged 250 billion the city owes the mohawk.
Solution two, do not allow the universities to grow, they bring in too many foreign students that place a huge burden on families and lower income people., There is a direct correlation between the rise of rent with uni, and homelessness.
Thank you Mr Mayor. Grateful that you are our Mayor.
Excellent news. Closing in the Spring will not solve the problem. Needs to be open year round and need Bouma to step up and lobby for funding.
It's a start. It will give them a warm place to spend nights and store their stuff, shower and clean up. It's more than they have now.
Permanent housing for the homeless needs to come sooner than 10 years.
That’s good. Hopefully they can find some funding to extend this program further.
It’s about time the city steps in and helps the homeless
Hearing the news story my understanding is it is a place for them to sleep. and they can leave their belongings during the day if they want to, and it might it have lockers ?? So their stuff dose not get stolen or carry it with them. but they must leave and return nightly what do they do stand outside and freeze all day ?????
It's a good start. Let's keep it up now.
Awesome News that will keep them Warm and better to be sheltered for the winter
Great work! Kudos to all involved in making this happen.
