Staff has provided a list of possible decisions that BCW Committee Members could make beyond the proposed 2024 Draft Operating Budget to reduce the tax rate increase.
The City’s 2024 Draft Operating Budget proposes a budget increase of $6,087,200 to be raised through an increase in property taxation (4.76% tax rate increase). The taxation revenue budget is presented below.
The average single, detached residential property in Richmond Hill remains at $1.146 million for 2024, same as the prior year, and this property would see an annual impact of $96.54 on the municipal portion of the tax bill as a result of the proposed budget increase. In addition, the average residential property owner will see an increase on their tax bill of approximately $30.42 attributed to the Capital Asset Sustainability Levy.
