The proceedings will be live streamed starting at 12 p.m., with details available on the city's website.

Residents narrowly avoided a tax increase last year, but Mayor Clifford Lee has said that might not be possible this year
if the revenue-sharing agreement with the province does not change. 

Premier Wade MacLauchlan has said he's willing to look into the issue but no decisions have been made.

Last week, when the federal budget was released, the mayor highlighted several projects he said needed funding, including the new water source in Miltonvale and storm sewer separation work.
