The Administrative staff at the Town Office are typically your first point of contact for any questions related to Town services and procedures. This could include things such as the payment of taxes, recycling and garbage collection, animal control services, or questions regarding by-laws. Some of these by-laws deal with various licenses and permits such as licenses for home-based businesses, pets or building and development permits. If you are planning a renovation or considering building any structure on your property, it is advisable to seek advice from the staff on any permits that may be required or any restrictions that may be imposed.
Like all municipalities, the main source of funding for operations is derived from property taxes. A typical tax bill will include municipal taxes which are kept within the revenue of the municipality and school taxes which are collected and distributed to the school division. Taxes are levied based on an apportioned assessment, or a portion of the market value of the property. The assessment value is set by the provincial government via the assessment branch of the Municipal Relations Department and may be appealed annually on set dates.
The Town also administers a variety of utility services including sewer and water in some areas.
