Tax Rates Unchanged In Lunenburg

The town of Lunenburg will hold the line on taxes over the coming year.  Council has set the residential rate at $1.27.9 per $100. of assessment.  The commercial rate will be $3.26 per $100 and the seasonal tourism tax rate will be $2.44.6.  The rates are unchanged from last year and Mayor Rachel Bailey says it was a challenge to avoid increases.

Lunenburg town council approved an operational budget for 2013-14 of $6,571,150.  The capital budget for the town is $3,027,100.  The lions-share of that goes toward infrastructure projects like repaving a portion of Victoria Road and improvements to water and sewer lines.
