Rocky Mountain House residents can expect to see a small increase in their tax bills this year after town council approved its $16.9-million budget recently.

The budget is up just over two per cent from last year. For a typical homeowner, whose assessment remains the same, the budget increase will mean about 1.5 per cent more on the municipal portion of the bill.

The school tax portion — about 30 per cent of total property tax bills — won’t be known until the spring.

On a $3,000 tax bill, the municipal increase will add another $45.30.

Council has also approved a $2.9-million capital budget.

Among the projects the town is undertaking this year are:

• Upgrading and maintaining trails

• Upgrading the John Plathum playground

• Undertaking a mountain bike park concept plan

• Creating a trail master plan

• Doing a concept plan for arena renovations.
