2021-2022 Budget & Tax Rate

 

At the Town Council meeting on November 09, 2021, Council approved, accepted, and adopted the General Operating Budget of the Town of Trenton for the fiscal year from April 01, 2021 to March 31, 2022, in the amount of $4,349,635. 

With extra consideration and reflection by Council, we have approved the Town’s tax rate for this fiscal year be set at $1.99 per $100 of assessment for Residential and Resource properties and $4.10 per $100 of assessment for Commercial properties with the Solid Waste (garbage collection) annual user fee rate at $146.00 per dwelling unit and the fire protection rate at $0.0725 per $100 of assessment. Dependent on property assessments, this may cause property owners to see an increase in their final tax bills. Council did not come to this decision lightly, and we are putting the future of our Town at the forefront of our decision making. 

The final tax billings will be processed by the administration office this week and residents should expect to receive their bills by mid-November. The due date will be Friday, January 14, 2022. 

We appreciate residents understanding and patience this year as the Town has faced major staff changes and delays in the yearend and budget processes. We thank everyone who has helped our Town get to this point and we are confident in our ability to provide the Town with excellent services and transparency moving forward.

Respectfully,
Mayor Donald Hussher & Town Council
