2021 Budget

During a meeting on September 21, 2020, Council directed staff to submit the 2021 Operating Budget with a residential property tax increase not exceeding 5 per cent on the Town portion of the total tax levy (for an estimated total residential property tax increase of no greater than 2.66 per cent when the Region and Education portions are considered). 

On Dec. 7, 2020, Council approved the 2021 budget with Milton's property tax increase of 3.93 per cent, resulting in an overall household impact increase of 2.19 per cent. Therefore, the overall property tax increase impact is $14.47 per $100,000 residential assessment. The 2021 budget highlights demonstrate Milton's commitment to taxpayer affordability, value for tax dollar and an investment in the priorities determined by Council and staff to ready Milton for the future. 

Background information on the development of the 2021 budget can be found in the Budget Call Report. The 2021 budget highlights are also available for review.
