On the 2018 Combined Tax & Assessment Notice is a line named "Special Tax". The Special Tax is made up of a combined total cost of several services provided by the municipality and is levied in accordance with Section 382 of the Municipal Government Act. The Special Tax is made up of the following:
• Waterworks Tax - $8,163 ($48.88/property) (was previously levied within the "Municipal Services Tax"). This amount includes the annual operating costs to the WILD Water Commission and a $40.00 per property charge to be transferred to the Water Reserve Account.
• Sewer Tax and Sewer Facility Maintenance Tax - $48,205 ($288.65/property).The Summer Village will be invoiced this year by the North 43 Lagoon Commission for the entire year (last year was a 1/2 year) of Operating & Maintenance costs for the sewer/force main.
• Fire Protection Area Tax - $15,364 ($92.00/property). This is the annual fee that the Summer Village pays to the fire service provider to ensure there is fire suppression coverage within the municipality. Should an individual property actually need fire suppression services, that individual property will be invoiced directly for the costs of their particular fire incident.
• Recreational Services Tax - $36,782 ($220.25/property). This is the annual cost to maintain the municipal reserve areas within the Summer Village.
Total Special Tax - $108,514 divided by 167 properties = $649.78/property.
