What do my taxes pay for?
Municipalities levy taxes to help pay for services such as police, fire protection, parks, recreation, and public works. Each year, Town Council reviews and approves the amount required to fund and support these services. From this amount, sources of revenue other than property taxes, such as provincial grants, license fees and user fees, are subtracted. The balance is the amount to be collected through property taxes.
