TOWN OF TRENTON NOTICE
Wednesday, June 15, 2022
2022-2023 Budget & Tax Rate
At the Town Council meeting on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, Council approved, accepted, and adopted the General Operating Budget of the Town of Trenton for the fiscal year from April 01, 2022 to March 31, 2023, in the amount of $4,680,027.
With extra consideration and reflection by Council, we have approved the Town’s Residential and Resource property tax rate for this fiscal year will increase $0.05 to be set at $2.04 per $100 of assessment.
All other tax rates will remain unchanged from the previous fiscal as follows:
- Commercial property tax rate to stay at $4.10 per $100 of assessment
- Solid Waste (garbage collection) annual user fee rate of $146.00 per dwelling unit
- 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, set to be issued in September 2022.
Council did not come to this decision lightly, and exhausted various scenarios ending with this necessary change. We would like to thank residents for their understanding and know we will continue to put the future of our Town at the forefront of our decision making.

Welcome Home to Pictou County Guide
- Published: Wednesday, 16 December 2020 14:45
The “Welcome Home to Pictou County Guide: A community guide to the place we call home” was created through a partnership between Healthy Pictou County, the Destination Eastern and Northumberland Shores Tourism Association (DEANS), the Pictou County Regional Enterprise Network (REN), and the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce. It was also designed and printed locally by Advocate Printing. Funding was received from the Province of Nova Scotia for a large portion of this project, and we are excited to have it completed.
This guide is a wonderful piece for people considering our area, those new to the area, and even those who grew up in Pictou County. Take a look, you might just find something new!
Stop by the local Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library branches to view a hard copy of the guide they will have on reference or visit the Healthy Pictou County website for more information and to view the electronic version (also available below). Any questions or details on ordering your own print run, please email Nicole LeBlanc.
