Developers Consider Challenging Fee Hikes

Following word last week that the city's role in an upcoming Ontario Municipal Board hearing will be greatly diminished, it seems another OMB battle could be on the horizon.

In this one, the city would find itself in the hot seat, defending its actions against a complaint brought by local residential and commercial developers.

Lawyer Robert Mullin said developers are kicking around the idea of appealing city council's implementation last week of a significant and nearly immediate increase in development charges.
