Regina budget proposes two years of property tax, utility rate hikes

For the first time, the City of Regina is putting out a multi-year budget, with proposals for mill rate increases for property taxes and utility rates in both of the next two years.

City administration is proposing a mill rate increase to property taxes of 4.67 per cent in 2023, which would mean on average $8.72 per month more on the average home worth $315,000, and a 4.5 per cent mill rate increase on utilities for $7.32 a month more on the average bill.

In 2024, the proposal is for a 4.66 per cent mill rate increase on property taxes, for a $9.11 increase per month on the average home worth $315,000, and a 4.0 per cent mill rate increase on utilities bills, for a $6.60 increase per month on the average bill.

Close to two per cent of the mill rate increase in both years is due to police operations increases — a $6.3-million increase in 2023, and a $5.6-million increase in 2024.
