King Township is aiming for a zero per cent increase to its annual property tax for 2022.

“We are fortunate to live in a beautiful township with a high quality of life and excellent municipal services,” said Mayor Steve Pellegrini. “King Township is fiscally responsible and is committed to keeping the township portion of the annual municipal tax at zero per cent. King held the line on taxes in 2021 due to the impacts of COVID-19 and we continue to be committed to reducing the stress on our taxpayers.”

A survey to gather public feedback on the 2022 budget is available on SpeaKing, at until Nov. 1.
