A consultant’s report commissioned by the City of St. John’s is suggesting that the case for amalgamating the Northeast Avalon isn’t strong. “The report does not present a compelling case for amalgamation and may in fact offer reinforcement to opponents of amalgamation,” wrote Robert Smart in a memo obtained by the CBC. Smart said the report found amalgamation would likely decrease taxes for St. John’s residents but increase taxes in Mount Pearl and Paradise.
