A New User Fee Bylaw Has Been Passed

Marmora and Lake municipal council recently approved the 2019 User Fee Bylaw.

Why user fees?

Provincial legislation in Ontario currently provides municipalities with two primary sources of ongoing revenue: taxes and user fees.

Taxes

Taxes (property and business) are paid by all property and business owners to help pay the cost of Municipal services and infrastructure, such as roads, parks, policing and protective services, and other services..

User fees

User fees are paid by those who use and benefit privately from certain Municipal goods and services.

Please review the new User Fee Bylaw to understand the 2019 rates.
