The municipal tax rate for the county of Antigonish should be in place within two weeks, according to new County Warden. Owen McCarron says council is tying up loose ends with this years budget, but expects the rate to remain much the same:
It is expected the new rate will be set during the regular council meeting on June 20th. The residential tax rate for this previous year was 88 cents per 100 dollars of assessment. The commercial rate was $1.46 .
