Most municipal services are subsidized from property taxes. User fee increases allow the Town to reduce the impact on the tax rate while continuing to provide high levels of service to our customers.
Hard copies of fees & charges and the related by-law can be obtained from the Legislative Services Department at 395 Mulock Drive.
