A 3.87 percent increase in the municipal portion of your property tax rates has been approved by North Grenville council.
Council officially approved its 2023 budget at this week’s meeting.
For the average household, that means you’ll be paying roughly $245 more in property taxes this year compared to 2022.
The total operating budget for the year, unchanged from the first draft presented in February, comes out to nearly $27-million, about 3.9 percent higher than last year’s.
The largest growth areas in the budget compared to 2022 are its allocation for staff salaries, and for “other expenses,” like community grants and contributions to the library.
Meanwhile, the municipality is set to save some money on paying off its debts compared to last year, as well as on “contracted professional services” like IT and legal support.
You can view a detailed breakdown of the budget on the municipality’s website.
