The 2016 budget for the City of Dorval was adopted at a council meeting on December 16, 2015. As in the past, the 2016 budget reflects the unavoidable increases in energy costs, the maintenance cost of municipal buildings and equipment, the costs with respect to the City’s labour agreements, and the price of goods and services in general.
Principles of sound public funds management, taking into account policies that may affect budgetary considerations and the capacity to pay of our taxpayers, have again guided us in the preparation of the 2016 budget, which totals $124,940,000.
As for taxation in 2016, the average residence of the City of Dorval will see a 0.50% increase in its tax bill, less than the cost of living, which is 1.2% for the Montreal area.
Lastly, Mayor Edgar Rouleau used the occasion to thank the administration and the members of the municipal Council for the efforts put into the creation of the 2016 budget, and to wish a merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all.
