The Town of Bruderheim has made themselves more appealing for businesses.
 
The town has a 50/50 split mill rate, meaning both residential and non-residential rates pay the same, roughly 8.2 per cent.
 
Property tax, in dollar terms is calculated by multiplying the assessed property value and the mill rate and then dividing by 1,000.
 
"We did a comparison with all of the businesses our size in the area and our mill rate is extremely low," said councillor Judy Schueler. "When you look at that across the board, that's fairly phenomenal and good for our businesses."
 
Bruderheim is looking to attract more businesses as they expand, capitalizing on the momentum off of the new, unique chain hotel in town called Studio Six.
 
"It's a more competitive rate to build businesses with and we need more businesses in town, our residents can't always be driving to Fort Saskatchewan."
 
Schueler sees the mill rate staying the same for the foreseeable future.
