Alberta Party response to Question 2

Question:  How would your party provide long-range, sustainable, predictable capital funding for Alberta’s large cities?

Municipalities rely on transfers from the Provincial and Federal governments for the majority of their capital funding. Usually this funding is through application based programs that vary dramatically from year to year, which makes it challenging for municipalities to plan their capital investments. The Alberta Party would provide municipalities with stable and predictable funding by allocating a percentage of income tax revenues to fund municipal infrastructure. We would also work with municipalities to determine other stable and predictable revenue streams, such as a hotel room tax.
