Tay Township Council Approves 2024 Budget

Tay, Ontario – On March 21, 2024 Tay Township Council approved the Township’s 2024 budget that includes $11.7 million in taxation and $6.4 million in water & wastewater rates and levies.

Tay Township’s municipal tax increase for 2024 is 4.56%. The overall residential property tax bill impact for 2024, including County and Education taxes, is estimated at a 3.76% increase over 2023. For a median single-family detached residence in Tay Township assessed at $219,000 this will mean an estimated increase of $7.82/month.

The Township’s annual budget also includes funding from reserves, grants, development charges and investments which all contribute to funding municipal services and construction projects. In 2024 Tay has planned to undertake $35.2 million in capital projects. While water rates have remained the same in 2024 as they were in 2023, wastewater system users have seen a 4.1% increase to rates or $3.50/month for a single-family home.

Mayor Ted Walker noted that “Council and staff have diligently collaborated to develop a budget that delivers to the needs of our residents. Council is confident that a balance has been achieved and remains dedicated to seeking efficiencies and innovations for the benefit of our community.”
