Meeting its commitment to keep the total property tax increase in line with inflation, Oakville Council unanimously approved a 3.01 per cent increase to the town’s portion of the tax bill for an overall property tax increase of 1.47 per cent. This means an average home assessed at $400,000 will pay an additional $55.20 per year or $1.06 per week for town programs, services and infrastructure renewal.
