FARM TAX UPDATE

Vision (Canada) - - Actualites • News -

The Uni­ted Coun­ties of Pres­cott-Rus­sell (UCPR) says that any changes to the farm tax rates are the pro­vin­cial go­vern­ment’s res­pon­si­bi­li­ty and not up to lo­cal go­vern­ments to de­cide. UCPR of­fi­cials made the point du­ring a mee­ting with re­pre­sen­ta­tives for the new pro­vin­cial go­vern­ment du­ring the recent As­so­cia­tion of Mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ties of On­ta­rio confe­rence in Ot­ta­wa. The Fe­de­ra­tion of Agri­cul­ture has been mee­ting with mu­ni­ci­pal and coun­ty coun­cils ear­lier this year as­king them to consi­der re­duc­tions to lo­cal farm tax rates to help the agri­cul­ture sec­tor deal with ri­sing ope­ra­ting costs. – Gregg Cham­ber­lain
