Taxes

Richmond Hill has one of the lowest tax rates in the GTA, but the tax payment for an average house is higher than our neighbours in Markham and Vaughan.  This is because Richmond Hill house prices are higher than theirs.  I will use my business experience to ensure that we get value for our money and stop unnecessary tax increases by:

  • Asking tough questions of staff when new spending is proposed

  • Ensuring that new developments pay their fair share for roads, sewers, water and other infrastructure

  • Asking staff to compare our programs and spending to other municipalities to find areas where we can learn and do better

  • Looking into ways that the Town can provide fair value to condominium owners who pay for many services such as garbage pickup that they cannot use

  • Saving our Town's reserves for when we need them

  • Advocating for town and regional departments to keep spending increases at or below inflation
