St. Catharines City Budget Infographic

Budgets may be hard to understand — and that’s where an infographic can be very helpful. I used cutouts of various currencies to make the bar graphs that show how the breakdown of each $100 of tax money is used by the city. Got four $5 bills and some pocket change to pay for YOUR firefighters? And just exactly what is a levy?

The Levy question is answered on the PDF, in a bit of humour I wrote but never intended to get printed.
