Quispamsis taxes to rise

The tax rate is going up in Quispamsis.

The Telegraph-Journal reports Town Council approved its operating and utility budgets last night and is increasing the tax rate by one cent to $1.28 per hundred dollars of assessment. Councillors were quick to point out that rate is still much lower than other municipalities of the same size in the province like Riverview.  Sewer and water rates will also be increasing.

The town will also be borrowing $750,000 over 15 years to invest in road repairs.
