In December 2011, your Town Council had the task once again of preparing and balancing the 2012 Budget. This continues to be a very difficult process, without burdening our citizens with a tax increase or having to reduce services. However, each year Council strives to present a balanced budget to Government. We are pleased to inform, that we have again, been fortunate enough to avoid having to increase any taxes this year. Listed below are the tax rates and fees which are in effect for 2012

Residential Property Tax 9.0 Mills Residential Minimum Property Tax $280.00
Cabin Area Property Tax $150.00
Fire Fee Tax $30.00

Water Turn On Fee (curbstop turned on) $10.00
Water Turn Off Fee (curbstop turned off) $10.00

The above fees for water turn on/off applies to those who request to have their water turned on or off, not to be confused with those who have their water turned on/off due to overdue taxes.

Please note that your four (4) quarterly payments for 2012 taxes are due in March, June, September and December. If your account becomes overdue, your water supply is subject to disconnection, without further notification from the Town. As well, please note that there is a $30 re-connect fee for those who have their water turned off, due to any tax arrears.

ALL TAXES, Property, Water, Sewer, Poll and Business Taxes and Fire Fees, which are not paid by, December 31, 2012, at the very latest, will have interest (Prime plus 3%) added to the balance, and either water disconnection or court action will be taken.

In addition, anyone still owing taxes for 2010 or prior years, can expect to have their water supply disconnected without further notice, or will have court action taken against them.
