Q and As

What makes up the budget?

A municipality’s budget is made up of two parts:

Operating – spent on running Town facilities, programs and services

Capital – spent on building and repairing Town infrastructure, including roads, pipes and buildings

What funds the budget?

To fund the operating and capital budgets in Georgina, annual revenues are generated. The main sources of revenue are property taxes, user fees and development charges.

Property taxes

Your property tax bill is divided between the Town of Georgina, York Region and the Province of Ontario for education. Georgina uses its portion of your taxes to pay for Town programs and services.

User fees and service charges

These are paid by residents and businesses when accessing certain services, such as recreation programs and permits.

Development charges

These are paid by developers and are used to help fund capital projects such as roads, pipes and recreation centres.

What do my taxes pay for?

In 2018, the Town of Georgina spent $76.2 million on delivering property tax supported programs and services, and maintaining Town infrastructure.
