City Council

Kingston City Council has approved the 2016 budget and a 2.5% tax hike.

Council wrapped up three days of budget deliberations last night and unanimously approved spending for the expansion of the Kingston airport.

The operating budget is just over $348 million and the capital budget is almost $68 million.

The 2.5% tax increase will add about $80 a year to the property tax bill for an average home.

Officer Charged

A Kingston Police officer charged by South Frontenac OPP with uttering threats is no stranger to being on the wrong side of the law.

42 year old Andrew Donald Wilby was charged after the OPP investigated a complaint about threats in South Frontenac on November 10th.

Wilby has been placed on administrative duties by Kingston Police.

He’s the Kingston Police officer who was fined $1,700 and had his driver’s license suspended for a year for hitting a man he was chasing with his police cruiser on St. Patrick’s Day of 2012.

He also pled guilty in 2008 to making a death threat against his fiancé in January of 2004.

CFB Kingston

The Trudeau government will unveil the details today of how Canada will take in 25-thousand Syrian refugees. The government is expected to say it is unlikely to meet its deadline of resettling that number by the end of the year.

Part of the plan is to house refugees at Canadian Forces Bases. CFB Kingston is getting ready to host up to 600 refugees.

About 480 personnel at CFB Kingston have been ordered to move into shared accommodation in rooms holding four people.  No families are being relocated and the soldiers who do have to bunk with others will have their accommodation fees adjusted.

CFB Trenton is getting ready for up to 950 refugees.

New Era

Ontario is about to enter a new era of cap and trade.

Environment Minister Glen Murray says the provinces long term plan to fight climate change will outline how it is going to reduce emissions by 80 percent from 1990 levels by the year 2050.  The Premier has already said Ontario will introduce a cap-and-trade system to put a price on carbon emissions and reduce greenhouse gases.

CFB Kingston – Refugees

The Syrian refugees are coming and hundreds…possibly thousands…will be housed at CFB Kingston.

Soldiers at CFB Kingston have been ordered to leave their barracks this week to make way for Syrian refugees.  CTV News says it has obtained an internal memo outlining the request.

The memo does not indicate where military personnel will be resettled.

It says multiple buildings at CFB Kingston are being cleared for November 30th to house refugees.

The Trudeau government is expected to unveil details of its refugee resettlement plan tomorrow.

Kingston – Refugees

The city of Kingston has set up a special KFLA Refugee Fund with the United Way.

Financial donations are being accepted to help refugees coming to the area.  There is no administrative fee and donations can be made online through the the United Way KFLA website.

Mayor Bryan Paterson says the city has a proven interest in helping people who have had to flee their homes.  Over the past few months Kingston has welcomed five refugee families.
