2015 Approved Budget

The 2015 capital and operating budgets aim to strike a balance of affordable taxes for property owners while implementing and maintaining priority services for the residents of Milton.  On January 26, 2015, Milton Town Council approved the 2015 capital and operating budgets resulting in a combined investment of $135.2 million in the community.

Council approved increases to the Town's portion of the tax bill of 3.04% and 3.12% in the urban and rural service areas respectively.  When combined with the Library's approved 3.4% increase, the Region of Halton's 1.6% increase and a 0% Educational increase, the overall property tax increase is 1.65% in the urban area and 1.61% in the rural area.  This means that residential property taxes will increase by $12.80 in the urban area and $12.03 in the rural area per $100,000 of assessment.
