Did you get your tax notice Friday ?
I will be honest – I own my home, a townhouse – not large but sufficient
I am a senior – young at heart
Taxes payable: $545.87
Now not all residents are senior or live in a small home but;
Street Maintenance and Capital Projects
Park Maintenance and Capital Projects
RDOS joint services: all regional parks and buildings, Frank Venables Theatre, Arena, Pool, 911, Sterile Insect Program
Administration and Town Hall staff
Water and Sewer parcel tax
ALL that service for less than $60 a month. I pay $180.00 each month to my strata for far less.
Your tax may be higher – nice location 3 bedroom walk-up say Rockcliffe, maybe a million dollar home on Tuc-el-nuit. Yes you will pay more.
BUT what a great price for seniors who have worked all their lives to get to this spot in time.
Disclaimer: One change this year – all water, sewer, recycling, garbage utility rates not included in taxes and will be paid quarterly on a separate billing process. 9% Policing Cost to be spent on capital for next 4 years.
I not promoting the Town of Oliver – just reporting on the best tax deal I have seen in my life-time.
