Who Are We?
The St. Albert Taxpayers Association (SATA) is a non-profit, organization dedicated to engaging
St. Albert residents to influence the policies and spending decisions of St. Albert's City Council
and Administration to ensure reduced waste, sustainable spending and more accountable
SATA began in spring 2008 as a result of massive property tax increases faced by many
residents and the post election disclosure of large operating deficits at Servus Place.
We became registered as a non-profit group in 2009.
"A St. Albert where all can afford to live: taxes are affordable AND Municipal spending is in the best
interest of the majority of taxpayers rather than special interest groups."
Accountable Municipal Government ... For the Benefit of All Taxpayers
What Do We Stand For?
Better spending decisions that keep the impact on the taxpayer a primary consideration
"Value for money" accountability from City management
A more detailed statement describing what SATA stands for can be viewed by clicking on the following
link What We Stand For.
What Have We Achieved?
SATA successfully campaigned for Council to require developers to pay the full infrastructure
costs for developing the annexed lands. This saved taxpayers $92 million in extra taxes.
We lobbied for budget decreases and have seen a moderation in staff growth, new spending
and tax increases in the 2010 budget.
