March 24 Town Council

Motion of support for Ukraine

At the March 15 meeting of Town Council, Councillor Jodi MacKay brought forward the following motion:

I would like to acknowledge that the Town of Wolfville stands united with the people of Ukraine. Their courage and determination are an inspiration to us all.

We unequivocally condemn this unprovoked and illegal invasion. Democracy and freedom are under attack and it is our hope that the whole world will stand up to Russia and say "no."

So I move that the Town of Wolfville express its unwavering support for Ukraine’s people, sovereignty and territorial integrity and that the Town condemn Russia’s wholly unprovoked and wanton invasion of Ukraine and calls on Russia to cease and withdraw all military operations within Ukraine immediately.  

The motion passed with unanamous support.

Council approves 22/23 budget - Media release

Wolfville's Council has approved an operating budget totalling $12 million for the fiscal year 2022/23, with a capital investment plan of $5.9 million.  

Through this year’s budget process, Council was able to lower the tax rate, to ensure property tax increases stay within cost of living.  This was possible despite challenges of major cost increases in several areas of the Town’s services, including policing costs budgeted to increase by $259,000.  Council was able to utilize the Town’s healthy cash reserves to offset a number of these cost increases. 

 The approved budget includes a decrease of 1.75 cents to the residential rate bringing it to $1.4575 per $100 of assessment, a decrease of 1 cent in commercial rate to $3.575, a decrease of 2 cents in the business development area rate to $0.26, and small decrease in fire protection area rate 4/10th of a cent to $0.052.
