The Town of Gravenhurst has approved increases in their community user fees and service charges, in the August 9, 2022, Council meeting.

Effective January 1, 2023, charges for Town fees will be implemented.

The changes in rates can impact areas such as corporate and development services, administration, parks and recreation, the cemetery, and include services such as fire and emergency, space rentals, applications, permits, licencing, and inspections.

These areas can affect charges such as such as interest on late payments of municipal taxes or other unpaid balances, charges on NSF cheques, and other fees or services typically charged provided by the Town.

The Town’s CFO and Director of Corporate Services, Val Sequeira said, “Regarding the user fees and services for 2022, we traditionally looked at the standard 2% from inflation, but now it’s at 8%.”

The Town has a summary of their User Fees and Service Charges available for review on their website at: https://www.gravenhurst.ca/en/services-and-info/resources/Documents/User-Fees-2023/Recommended-2023-Users-Fees-.pdf
