Bylaw 2021-01, Tax Rate

Council has passed 1st Reading of the 2021 Tax Rate Bylaw. The Bylaw will come back to Council at the April 16 Council meeting for 2nd Reading. The proposed tax rates are 1.41923 for Residential and 7.09000 for Non-Residential. In 2020 the rates were 1.29311 and 6.46555 respectively.

While the rates have gone down, taxes will likely go up this year due to significant increases the Alberta School Foundation Fund and Police Service Requisitions, and some contracted services, which are out of Council’s control. Council would like your feedback prior to 2nd Reading. You can contact the CAO with feedback or any questions, Phone 403-752-3322 (Ext. 1007) or Email admin@id4waterton.ca.
