Municipalities from across the province are supporting a one per cent sales tax increase.

The Association of Municipalities of Ontario are now in day two of their annual conference. President Lynn Dollin kicked off the event asking for the sales tax increase, which would be dedicated to be used on local infrastructure.

Parry Sound Council voted last week to support AMO’s calls for a sales tax increase.
