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.
