The Glengarry News - - Front Page - BY SCOTT CARMICHAEL News Staff

South Glen­garry’s res­i­den­tial ratepay­ers should ex­pect a two to three per cent in­crease on their 2019 prop­erty tax bills.

Gen­eral man­ager of cor­po­rate ser­vices/trea­surer Lach­lan McDon­ald said at the most re­cent coun­cil meet­ing states that “we will seek from the next coun­cil such an in­crease,” de­scrib­ing it as “palat­able as a ba­sis for ini­ti­at­ing the bud­get process.”

His de­part­ment will “de­velop the bud­get, in­ter­nally” by the end of Novem­ber and present 2019 cap­i­tal and op­er­at­ing bud­gets in Fe­bru­ary. The new South Glen­garry coun­cil will be sworn in De­cem­ber 3.
