News Release

April 28, 2014

On behalf of Council for the Town of Espanola, I would like to thank the residents of Espanola for their patience and trust they have shown during my most challenging time on Council, which can be attributed to the ARB Decision regarding Domtar’s Assessment Appeal.  I am extremely proud of the way Council conducted themselves along with our staff and unions during these trying times.  The Town of Espanola was spared of significant tax increases due to the attentiveness of both Council and staff.
