Cantley freezes 2021 municipal tax rate

Residents of Cantley won’t see their tax rate increase in 2021, though their tax bill will still increase due to previous infrastructure investments, Cantley Mayor Madeleine Brunette announced along with the budget adoption at the council meeting on Dec. 15.

“The taxation set in 2021 takes into account the overall value of municipal charges, including all operations and investments for the year, while taking into account the consequences of COVID-19 on operations and income prospects,” Brunette explained. “The increase that will appear is a result of past investments in infrastructure with the purchase of strategic land for the development of services, as well as the paving and widening of several major [roads.]”

The 2021 budget forecasts revenues totaling $16,293,468, of which $13,195,160 comes from taxes; it forecasts $17,336,557 in total expenses.
