Council Considers Tax Rate Increases

Posted on

At the April 6, 2022 Council meeting, Council considered options for mill rate increases.  Council is aware that the County’s assessment base may experience a significant reduction once the Provincial Government concludes its assessment model review within the next 3 years. 

This review could result in a significant mill rate increase (up to 16%), therefore Council has decided to gradually increase the mill rate in each of next few years to mitigate the impact. 

Council is proposed a 2.773% mill rate increase in 2022.  To review the other options that were considered, and see the impact on a sampling of properties in the County, click here.
