Enderby aims for no tax increase

Enderby’s budget process is nearing an end.

On Monday, council gave three readings to the 2011 financial plan, which includes no residential tax increase.

“Adoption of the bylaw will be at the next meeting May 2,” said Mayor Dee Wejr.

While property taxes aren’t going up, residents will be paying more for basic utilities.

Sewer and water user fees are climbing 1.3 per cent each.

“I haven’t heard a word from people about the increase,” said Wejr.

“People understand the water and sewer services have to pay for themselves. We need to cover expenses.”

The net impact to a single-family dwelling with a 100-foot frontage is $36.56.

Of that, $30 is related to the borrowing of funds for sewer capital projects.
