Trail keeping flat tax rate this year

Trail Council has made some decision when it comes to their flat tax rate.

Mayor Mike Martin says they had 3 options, but they decided to retain the flat tax at the current level that was set last year, at 260-dollars.

He says it seemed to be the most equitable and fair process at this point.

Meanwhile they're still working on the budget, but it looks like the average residential taxpayer will see a 66-dollar increase this year, partly due to added expenses like the Library/Museum Riverfront Centre, and work at the airport.
