Programme triennal d'immobilisations
2014-2015-2016 (in French only)
On December 17, Gatineau Municipal Council adopted a $526 million balanced budget for 2014. Gatineau intends to maintain its level of services and manage its growth with a minimal tax increase.
In terms of the average residential tax bill, the 2014 increase is equivalent to 2.9%, or $67, taking into account the $4.60 reduction in the residential levy for residual materials management, which drops from $128.96 to $124.36.
Of this 2.9%, 1% represents the dedicated infrastructure tax, and 1.9% will go to increase the tax base, in essence the equivalent of the Bank of Canada's consumer price index “target”.
