On August 22nd, 2011 Enid Slack participated in a videotaped interview entitled “The Tides of Municipal Finance: A Dock Side Chat with Harry Kitchen and Enid Slack.” Slack and Kitchen discussed how the municipal dollars come in and where they go out. Together these two municipal finance experts gave meaning to the numbers. Dr. Slack presented some of the pitfalls and unintended consequences other jurisdictions have faced when attempting to favour assessment for some property owners over others. Mr. Kitchen presented recently commissioned AMO research on new trends in municipal expenditures nation-wide.
