LaSalle Council has approved a 0% tax increase in principle at their December 18th budget session. The 2020 Budget By-law will be presented at a Regular Meeting of Council in January.

“We have a good Council and a good leadership. We are ‘Team LaSalle’. I know that the budgeting process does not come easy,” said Mayor Marc Bondy. “Council and administration are all on the same page when it comes to the budget.”

The budget requires a $2.3M levy increase over the 2019 budget, bringing the general levy to $36.7M. Those funds are being accounted for through an increase of $0.9M in new construction, and an additional $1.4M from phased in re-assessment on existing properties.

The approved budget allows the Town to continue to invest in service level increases such as those identified in the Fire Master Plan and other ongoing Master Plans, as well as investing in long-term capital infrastructure of the Town.

“Growth is important to keep tax rates affordable. The growth in LaSalle over the last five years has allowed the Town to keep tax rate increases low or at zero,” said Dale Langlois, Director of Finance/Treasurer.
