Special levy for flood protection
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.
