2012 Budget: Impact to the Taxpayer

  • Using 2012 CVA amounts, the impact to the residential median taxpayer of a 3.92% increase in the requirement from taxation is estimated to be approximately $48.60 or 3.49%

  • While the November 2011 annual inflation rate is 2.9%, one focus of the budget is Economic Development growth. Those initiatives in the consolidated Development and Communications operating budget represent an aggregate increase of $250,224, or 46.3% of the total operating budget increase for 2012. This increase, plus the elimination of the Tillsonburg Levy revenue of $100,000 and the $180,568 increase in the Police budget relating to the anticipated OPP contract and a planned reduction in a PSU credit, results in accounting for an operating increase of $530,792 or 98% of the total operating budget increase
