Replay live chat: What do you think about the 7.43% tax hike?

Join the Saskatoon Morning live chat right now.

Saskatoon taxpayers will be paying more in 2014. City councillors have agreed on an increase of 7.43 per cent. 

More than half of the tax dollars will be put toward the repair and maintenance of the city's streets. Money is also going towards building more traffic sound barriers. 

Saskatoon Morning asked its audience the following questions: What do you think about the tax hike -- do you agree or disagree? Do you mind paying more in taxes if potholes and crumbling curbs are fixed? What do you think about the city's decision to build more traffic sound barriers? Does the city need more sound barriers, and if so, where? Do you think the money can be better spent?
