Spe­cial levy for flood pro­tec­tion

Ottawa Sun - - NEWS - — Jon Will­ing

Landown­ers of 96 prop­er­ties in Bri­tan­nia Vil­lage will start pay­ing a spe­cial levy for flood pro­tec­tion.

Coun­cil voted to start charg­ing a spe­cial levy on their 2018 tax bills.

The city will raise $195,000 over 10 years from those prop­er­ties, in ad­di­tion to reg­u­lar prop­erty taxes. It’s half of the price of the flood pro­tec­tion mea­sures planned in 2006. The city paid the other half and the Rideau Val­ley Con­ser­va­tion Au­thor­ity or­ga­nized the work, which in­cluded a berm, mod­i­fi­ca­tions to a re­tain­ing wall and other drainage im­prove­ments.
