Municipal taxes are going down in a neighbouring county.
Strathcona County approved a 2.18 per cent decrease on municipal property taxes for 2018.
For a sample single-family residential property assessed at $435,000, total property tax will go down about $34 for the year.
“The county achieved a tax decrease by focusing on priorities and looking at efficiencies and historical trends in budgeting,” said mayor Rod Frank. “This tax decrease leaves a few more dollars in your wallet, while at the same time the 2018 budget maintains service levels and funds new initiatives for our community.”
Tax notices will be mailed in mid-May. The payment deadline is Jun.29.
