Rate notices are sent to property owners each year in late August or early September to cover the financial year from 1 July to 30 June.

The following information explains how rates are calculated depending on the type of property you own.

The Capital Improved Value (CIV) of a property is used to calculate the rate amount to be paid. Not all properties are rated the same as they have different uses, which is why your property type determines the differential rate that will apply to you.

Rates are calculated by multiplying the valuation (CIV) by the differential rate in the dollar. For example:

House and land valued at $300,000 on a general rate
= $300,000 x 0.004057
= $1,217.10

The differential rates for 2014/2015 are:
   Cents in $    
General Rate   .4057    
Farm Rate   .2637    
Commercial & Industrial Rate   .4706    
Recreation Rate   .2029    
Mixed Use Rate   .4706    
Vacant Land Rate-Township   .5071    
Vacant Land Rate-Other   .4057    
Trust for Nature   .2029    

In addition to your rates, the following charges may also apply:
Municipal Charge and Environmental Charge   -    
Waste Management Charge   129.00    
Residential Garbage Charge   126.00    
Commercial Garbage Charge   280.00
