Leamington Municipal Council approved the proposed 2019 municipal budget with a 1.8% tax increase.

The tax rate increase works outto an additional $37.10 on the municipal portion of a tax bill based on an average assessment value of $175,000.

“Ensuring an environment which encourages Leamington’s future advancement, even while maintaining fiscal responsibility, was a significant focus during the preparation of the 2019 budget,” said Peter Neufeld, Chief Administrative Officer.

Some significant projects for the year include a continued investment in the municipal sewer separation program, a municipal-wide water meter replacement project, upgrades to the Leamington Library facility, bike lane installation along Seacliff Drive and the installation of fibre at our waterfront. In addition, the 2019 budget will include attention to Uptown reinvention and waterfront development.

“This year’s budget reflects Council’s strategic priorities and values, focusing on infrastructure enhancements, environment protection, and first-rate service delivery, while ensuring an improved quality of life for our residents,” said Mayor Hilda MacDonald.
