A tax hike and water rate increase of two per cent is now official as Kapuskasing has approved its new budget.
The town’s CAO Yves Labelle says this means it will cost the average tax payer an extra $60 in total per year.
Labelle says the town has been efficient in the past, passing last year’s budget without a tax increase.
He says this increase is capital and not municipal.
The budget will be posted here now that it has been approved.
