The increase, which was finalized on Tuesday, will result in a tax increase of $38.82 per $100,000 of a home’s assessed value.

The capital budget is focused on improving the city’s infrastructure and park amenities.

Highlights include a new dog park, a network of trails around the Libro Center, the replacement of the Duck River Fifth Concession Bridge, a new concrete skate park, improvements to Malden Park, the replacement of a water tanker, road construction and the addition of a sewage forcemain and pumping station on Boblo Island.

A total of $19.7 million is being invested, including $5 million for roads, $4.1 million for culverts and bridges, $3.6 million for wastewater, and $3.5 million for dollars for water.

“I am pleased with the collaborative efforts of council and administration in preparing and reviewing this year’s capital budget,” said Mayor Aldo DiCarlo.

“The difficult years of debt reduction and increased reserve contributions have paid off and resulted in some much-needed infrastructure improvements that our residents have been asking for. Repairs to Angstrom, Concession 2 and Riverview roads and improvements to our parks are just a few investments our residents will appreciate this year.
