    They would be better off becoming a hamlet.

      Beaumont doesn't have the heavy industry that Strathcona County has. As a city, they would receive more grants.

        Mind you, I've read that Beaumont will expand to Highway 2 and the 41 Avenue SW in Edmonton.

          Bingo was his Name-O! Zero industry = next to nothing tax base with only the resi part contributing....my tax bill is almost as high as St.Albert's now. Previous Mayorship(s) never wanted to introduce heavy industry - wanted to keep it quaint and petite...lol. Mind you, the new leadership leaves us hard pressed as well. Let's just say our current "leader" just gave himself a nice fat raise and honestly couldn't run a lemonade stand.....let alone the Beaumont Minor Soccer Assoc....as he once attempted to do....

            Beaumont would be part of Leduc County which has an enviable tax base.
