White Rock sets tax rates
White Rock’s 2012 tax rates have been set.
City politicians gave unanimous support to giving final reading to its annual rates bylaw Monday, during a special meeting of council.
The thumbs-up confirms a jump of 2.5 per cent to this year’s average property tax and solid-waste levy – $65 for detached single-family home and $28 for condominiums.
Revisions to the city’s draft financial plan that reduced the proposed 2012 property tax increase from 4.57 per cent to 2.5 per cent, were endorsed by the finance and audit committee in March.
The city’s sewer connection and rental charges bylaw and drainage utility user fee bylaw were also passed Monday.
The trio received first, second and third reading at the May 7 council meeting.
