council chambers

York Regional Council has approved a $3.2 billion budget for 2019, the first year of a four-year budget coinciding with the current term of council.

The 2019 budget includes the following:

  • Tax increase of 2.96%
  • Additional 1% tax levy towards a new reserve to accelerate roads construction

The tax increase of 2.96% has been reduced by 0.41% compared to the initially tabled budget representing savings of $4.44 million. The combined 3.96% tax increase for 2019 will add approximately $95 to the average residential property bill.

Keeping commuters moving within traffic is top-of-mind for our residents. Throughout this term of Council, York Region will continue to heavily invest in roads and transportation services. The Roads Capital Acceleration Reserve will be dedicated to accelerating construction on numerous roads projects identified in the capital plan.

The budget includes an outlook for the remaining three years of this Council term with an annual tax levy increase of 2.96% from 2020 to 2022, which is inclusive of contributions to the Roads Capital Acceleration Reserve.
