North Grenville has finalized its budget for the year, and Mayor Nancy Peckford says your taxes will see a “modest” increase.
The municipality has approved its budget for 2022, which includes your property tax rate increasing by 0.74 percent.
“We have taken a fiscally responsible approach while investing in our community,” says Mayor Peckford. “This is consistent with Council’s approach since 2019 where we have kept any annual tax rate increases well below 2 percent.”
The municipality’s operating budget for the year is set at $25,828,100, roughly $3.1-million more than last year.
Nearly $7-million is being put towards improvements for roads, walkways, parks and other infrastructure in the community. $1.8-million has been set aside for the County Road 43 expansion project, which also includes building a new bridge over the Kemptville Creek.
A full breakdown of the budget is available on the North Grenville website.
