It’s budget season, and Saugeen Shores is predicting a tax hike for residents.
A blended rate of 3% will be the result, which takes into account the municipal, county and school board levies.
The increase would mean an average assessed home of $310,000 would pay an increase of $102.60.
Mayor, Luke Charbonneau, says the county and school board budgets have yet to be set, so it’s possible that number can change, either up or down.
Some staff could be added in 2019, either brand new or changing a part time staff to a full time position.
Staff will come back with a revised look at the operating budget in the weeks ahead.
