2017 is a Revaluation year, meaning every property in the Province will see a change in the assessed value. The new date that values will be based on is Jan 1, 2015. Assessed values in Osler will see increases around the 15% mark, however, this does not mean your taxes will go up by that same percentage. Town Council, generally speaking, will raise the budgeted expenses by 3% (or whatever the cost of living increase is), meaning they can only budget for revenues to be increased by the same percentage. Mill rates are adjusted to allow for the difference. Residents are encouraged to call the Town Office at 306-239-2155 if you would like clarification or a more in-depth explanation.
