One of the main discussions will be on the potential increase of development charges. Staff says the increase will bring the current School Site Acquisition Charges in line with current demand and the cost of real estate.

Trustees will also amend the policy for their remuneration, following their decision to increase remuneration earlier this year. In addition, they will look at changing a policy that allows trustees to roll over unused expenses to a following year.
