Tecumseh’s municipal levy will increase by 2.95% in 2022.

The increase in the tax levy approved by Council on Tuesday, November 16th, 2021, — as part of the 2022 budget — translates into $76 for the average residential property assessed at $250,000.

The three main themes of the budget are:

  • a return to normal, full-capacity operations after almost two years of interruptions by the pandemic;
  • implementing the first phase of an organizational review of the Town’s operations; and
  • ongoing reviews of operating processes and implementing related recommendations.

“This status quo budget allows us to refocus our energy and resources on enhancing our services to the residents and businesses of Tecumseh,” said Mayor Gary McNamara. “The Town has weathered almost two years of COVID-19 in good financial shape and with plans to improve flood protection, repair roads and increase recreation amenities. We also look forward to a community celebration of the Town’s centennial in 2022.”

The Town has budgeted total expenditures of $28.7 million for 2022.
