Less than three days af­ter pass­ing its tax rate by­law, North Glen­garry coun­cil was forced to call it back to due to some er­ro­neous in­for­ma­tion.

CAO Sarah Huskin­son says there was an er­ror re­gard­ing the multi-res­i­den­tial rate at the up­per tier level. As such, the town­ship will need to re­cal­cu­late its var­i­ous tax rates and sub­mit a new by­law at the May 28 meet­ing.

Ms. Huskin­son says that the new rate will not trans­late into a tax in­crease. She says the town­ship is still com­mit­ted to its cur­rent zero per cent in­crease bud­get that calls for a grand to­tal of $14,591,566 to be raised through taxes.

Forty-six per cent of that to­tal goes to the united coun­ties, 40 per cent goes to North Glen­garry with the bal­ance go­ing to school boards.
