ROCKWOOD, Ontario, March 4, 2019 – On March 4, 2019, Guelph/Eramosa Council approved the Operating and Capital Budget for 2019 with a local tax increase of 2.85%. 

As presented, the blended residential tax increase on the tax bill (Township + County + Education) is 2.33%.  This blended property tax increase of 2.33% amounts to $24.04 per $100,000 of assessed property value, of which the Township receives $7.15 per $100,000 of assessed property value.

“This year, the goal of Council and staff was to deliver a steady-as-you go budget that is in line with inflation and focuses on our core services,” said Mayor Chris White. “In 2019, the Township of Guelph/ Eramosa will be making investments in upgrading roads and bridges, installing energy-efficient lighting, working to complete Rockmosa Park and upgrading water and waste water infrastructure.”

Guelph Eramosa receives 24 cents of every municipal tax dollar.  Those resources provide maintenance of 225 kilometres of roads, 29 bridges and culvert structures, fire and emergency services, by-law enforcement, parks and recreation and planning services.
