Millage Proposal: Click here for the explanation presentation.
The Street/Drain Bond expires October 2022. The millage rate is around 5.00. Below is a ballot proposal on this November’s ballot to take effect (2023 if approved by the voters) after the road/drain bond expires. This means your taxes would decrease by 2 mills starting in 2023.
SYLVAN LAKE CHARTER AMENDMENT PROPOSAL 1
Shall the Charter be amended to add a new Section 13.5(c), establishing a single new additional millage of 3.0 mills for infrastructure maintenance and improvements for the City’s water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and street (including roads and sidewalks) systems, commencing July 1, 2023 and effective through and including July 1, 2037. It is estimated that, if levied, 3.0 mills would raise approximately $315,000 when first levied in 2023. The City’s other Charter authority to levy taxes would be unaffected.
