That the following motion of the City of Kitchener be endorsed:

"That Whereas the Ministry of Revenue has recently adopted an assessment information program which alters the information to be provided to the municipalities and, in some cases, the form in which it is provided;

And Whereas, one of the changes made is that information concerning additional assessments made under Section 43 will no longer be provided to municipalities using electronic data processing in machine readable form;

And Whereas, this change means that such additional assessments will have to be processed manually by such municipalities resulting in delay and additional cost to the municipality;

And Whereas, we are advised that the reason for such changes is to reduce the data processing costs of the Ministry;

And Whereas, this Council applauds the efforts of the Ministry towards fiscal restraint but points out that merely transferring Ministry costs to the municipalities does not result in any real saving to the taxpayers in general;

Therefore be it resolved that the Minister of Revenue be asked to review his Ministry's new assessment information program with a view to providing to municipalities all information previously received in usable form and at no increase in cost to the municipalities;

And that the City Clerk forward copies of this resolution to other Ontario cities and to the Association of Ontario Municipalities for endorsation and support."
