    DEVELOPMENT CHARGES EXPLAINED: ARE WE PAYING MORE TAX SO THAT DEVELOPERS GET TO POCKET MORE MONEY?
    7:00 PM to 9:00 PM Will your water rates and property taxes increase so that developers get a break on development charges? These charges are supposed to pay for servicing growth such as new subdivisions, but provincial laws restrict recoveries to about 75 percent of these costs and municipal governments frequently provide additional exemptions or discounts, hich increases the amount that must be borne by water rates and property taxes. In Hamilton, for example, the exemptions and discounts average over $14 million a year.Next week, Brant County is making important decisions about development charges.
