Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot lowers its tax rate to limit tax increases | VIVA MÉDIA Skip to main content

The new property assessment roll of Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot (NDÎP) confirms an average increase of 25% in property values in Vaudreuil-Soulanges. By reducing the residential tax rate from $ 0.6874 to $ 0.5680 per $ 100 of assessment, city council is limiting the increase in the tax bill to 5%.

This tax increase corresponds to the city’s real needs to meet the ever-increasing costs of municipal life, particularly in a context of high inflation.

“Many of our regular activities were able to resume,” explains Danie Deschênes, mayor of Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot. Our parks have come back to life and we have even been able to experience a magnificent edition of Notre-Dame en Fête.”

Infrastructure maintenance projects put on hold at the height of the pandemic were also able to move forward, and the efforts made by the City will continue, in particular with the repair of roads, the stabilization of the shorelines and maintenance of water and sewer networks.

The real estate market remained vigorous again in 2021, revenues were maintained and the expenses of various departments of the City remained stable in the 2022 Budget. The City must, however, face increases in quotas from the Sûreté du Québec and the Vaudreuil-Soulanges RCM. It must also provide funds for the construction of the barracks and other major recurrent expenses (emptying the ponds). The new fire service collaboration agreement between NDÎP and Pincourt, which came into effect in September 2021, is already meeting expectations.

The pricing of the various municipal services has been revised to better reflect actual costs. Due to the mobilization of citizens with regard to the management of residual materials and the strong participation in collections of recyclable and compostable materials, the City is able to reduce costs by diverting recoverable materials from landfills.

Conclusion of the budget preparation

The 2022 budget preparation shows that the finances of the City of Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot are healthy. According to the municipal administration, NDÎP is in a more than enviable position compared to the towns of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges RCM and even the whole of Quebec. These funds and reserves total more than $ 5 million.
