Central Elgin Council Adopts 2017 Budget

Central Elgin Council approved the Municipality's 2017 Budget at its February 13th meeting. The budget has a 0.11% tax rate decrease for 2017. The total Central Elgin property tax levy (capital and operating) increase is 2.47% or $299,163 over the 2016 levy. The budget includes funding for a number of significant capital projects. Actual changes in property taxes for individual properties will vary due to re-assessment.

The 2017 budget includes funding for:

  • Phase 1 capital improvements to Turvey Park, including hardscaping of additional pathways, new park benches, walkway reconstruction, and green gym equipment
  • Design for upgrades to Eastwood Park
  • New bleachers at Don Yeck Park ball diamonds in Belmont
  • Replacement of the concrete boardwalk on Main Beach in Port Stanley
  • Creation of a Port Stanley Fire Station architectural plan
  • Extensive roadwork, including: ◦Single surface treatment for Thomson, Black, Seventh, Yarmouth Centre, Dalewood, Shorlea, Prior, John, Hindley Jonathon, Bell, Drake, and South roads
  • Double surface treatment for Brouwers Line, between Quaker to Springwater roads
  • Hot mix paving for Carlow (South of Bridge Street), Meek, Maud, Bessie, Lower Spring, Valley, George, and Frederick streets
  • Upgrading of the Port Stanley wastewater treatment facility

Approximately half of property taxes collected in Central Elgin are retained by the Municipality of Central Elgin. The other half of property taxes funds education and County of Elgin services such as social services, libraries, homes for the aged and county roads. The provincial government sets education property tax rates. Elgin County Council establishes the County property tax rates.

The full budget can be viewed on the Municipality of Central Elgin website Finance page.
