Scugog's Piece

Each year, the Township undergoes a robust process to create an annual budget that delivers the services and programs residents and businesses rely on each day.

Did you know, out of all the property taxes you pay the government each year, municipal taxes make up only 9% of the total amount. Of that 9%, the Township receives 3% from overall taxes to operate and plan for services and infrastructure that you use everyday.

Capital Budget

The Capital budget outlines Scugog's plan for long-term projects. Examples of capital expenses may include:

  • Infrastructure development, building and construction projects (e.g. building new roads, bridges and sidewalks)
  • Park and greenspace improvements
  • Fleet expansion and maintenance (e.g. purchasing new fire trucks and snow plows)

Operating Budget

The Operating budget outlines our spending plan for the upcoming year. This includes the day-to-day costs of running:

  • Fire and Emergency services
  • Township Facilities (e.g. Scugog Arena, Blackstock Recreation Complex, Birdseye Aquatic Facility, Scugog Public Library, Scugog Shores Museum and Town Hall)
  • Recreation programs
  • Road maintenance
  • By-law enforcement
  • Debt payments and transfers to reserves

Online & Paper Opportunities

Community members can also share their 2022 Township budget priorities:
