Budget Committee Update – September 20, 2017
The City of Mississauga’s Budget Committee recently considered new and increased fees and charges for 2018. This includes transit fares, Recreation and Parks and Forestry programs. These revenue sources will help offset the cost of delivering these services.
- New fees introduced for non-resident pool rental
- MiWay cash fare increase by $0.25 from $3.50 to $3.75, paper ticket fares increase by $0.10 for adult, student and senior tickets effective January 29, 2018, while PRESTO fares remain at current rates
- New fees introduced for forestry inspection at $50, upgraded commemorative tree donation at $2,500 and garden park bench donation at $5,000
- Increase to filming location fees based on the cost of inflation and benchmarking
Additional revenue of approximately $1.2 million is expected from the increases and new fees. These will alleviate some pressures on the property tax rate in 2018.
The proposed fees and charges were presented at a Council meeting for approval on September 27, 2017.
