McKenzie Lake Pathways Snow Removal Special Tax Levy Set at $7.85 for 2014-15
The initial annual tax levy rate when the program first started was set at $10.87 in Oct 2005. This was based on an estimated annual cost of $50,000. Since then the cost of snow removal has varied fairly significantly ranging from $19,000 during a light snowfall year to $63,000 during a heavy snowfall year. On average, the annual cost of snow removal to date is $37,000. We had very light snowfall years in 2009-10 and 2011-12 and as a result we were carrying a significant surplus in our account with the city. In an effort to reduce this surplus, the tax levy was lowered to $3.00 for 2013-14. The tax levy is being increased to $7.85 for 2014-15 to ensure sufficient funds in the event of an upcoming heavy snowfall year as the community is not permitted to run a deficit. The tax levy rate is set a year in advance. For example, the levy for 2014-15 is set in Oct 2013 and collected in Jun 2014.
