PRATAC

Pakenham, Ramsay & Almonte Taxpayers’ Action Committee

What is this?

The Mission of the Pakenham, Ramsay & Almonte Taxpayers’ Action Committee hereinafter referred to as PRATAC is to establish and maintain an effective and informed taxpayers’ action committee in Pakenham, Ramsay and Almonte Wards whose purpose is to act as an advocacy group for all taxpayers.

Why do we need this?

Forming this type of committee of concerned taxpayers within a community is the first step towards productively channeling concerns about taxes, government spending and a lack of accountability into positive outcomes.

This is a grassroots movement to form a group, elected by members that will represent interests of all categories of taxpayer; residential, business and industrial.

Who is leading this?

There is currently a small working group appointed by concerned citizens laying out a roadmap for this committee. Going forward, a Board of Directors will be elected by members based on nominations put forward at the first general meeting, which will be held in September.

Where can I get more information?

Our website is evolving but it will provide additional information on our goals and objectives. You also have the ability to submit questions through this site to administrator@pratac.ca

How do I get involved?

Membership Registration is open, the working group is actively recruiting members now!

The Membership will be open to all residents, property and business owners over the age of 18.

Each member in good standing will have the right to nominate and vote to elect members of the Board as outlined in the Constitution.
