Glen Afton is interested in challenging City Hall’s 5.5% tax increase and asked if Hiltonia would like to participate. One member asked if we can find out what Glen Afton plans to propose as an alternative. An email will go out to the members/group to see if there is any interest. We will keep everyone informed on the progress.
