2021-2022 Budget & Tax Rate

2021-2022 Budget & Tax Rate


At the Town Council meeting on November 09, 2021, Council approved, accepted, and adopted the General Operating Budget of the Town of Trenton for the fiscal year from April 01, 2021 to March 31, 2022, in the amount of $4,349,635. 

With extra consideration and reflection by Council, we have approved the Town’s tax rate for this fiscal year be set at $1.99 per $100 of assessment for Residential and Resource properties and $4.10 per $100 of assessment for Commercial properties with the Solid Waste (garbage collection) annual user fee rate at $146.00 per dwelling unit and the fire protection rate at $0.0725 per $100 of assessment. Dependent on property assessments, this may cause property owners to see an increase in their final tax bills. Council did not come to this decision lightly, and we are putting the future of our Town at the forefront of our decision making. 

The final tax billings will be processed by the administration office this week and residents should expect to receive their bills by mid-November. The due date will be Friday, January 14, 2022. 

We appreciate residents understanding and patience this year as the Town has faced major staff changes and delays in the yearend and budget processes. We thank everyone who has helped our Town get to this point and we are confident in our ability to provide the Town with excellent services and transparency moving forward.

Mayor Donald Hussher & Town Council

Welcome Home to Pictou County Guide

The “Welcome Home to Pictou County Guide: A community guide to the place we call home” was created through a partnership between Healthy Pictou County, the Destination Eastern and Northumberland Shores Tourism Association (DEANS), the Pictou County Regional Enterprise Network (REN), and the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce. It was also designed and printed locally by Advocate Printing. Funding was received from the Province of Nova Scotia for a large portion of this project, and we are excited to have it completed.

This guide is a wonderful piece for people considering our area, those new to the area, and even those who grew up in Pictou County. Take a look, you might just find something new!

Stop by the local Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library branches to view a hard copy of the guide they will have on reference or visit the Healthy Pictou County website for more information and to view the electronic version (also available below). Any questions or details on ordering your own print run, please email Nicole LeBlanc.
