Answer

Part of being a leading municipality means taking the necessary steps to ensure successful and smart growth.

A new wastewater system would help with this growth and would help keep our local economy alive and our community thriving – by bringing new residents and businesses to the Town.  Commercial and industrial properties contribute approximately 2.4 times the amount towards taxes that residential properties contribute so having more businesses come to our community helps everyone. 

Like any municipality, there will be annual changes to our taxes, but having a larger population and more businesses will help with managing and sharing them.

Further, any changes to taxes will not be directly related to this project; the Town cannot raise taxes to pay for this project since not everyone in the municipality will be connecting.

We are dedicated to working with taxpayers to ensure two-way communication through our projects and processes.
