The Rural Municipality of Hanover will hold a public hearing next Wednesday to present a draft of their 2018 budget, a budget that, if passed will lower taxes for ratepayers.

The public financial plan hearing will take place at the RM of Hanover municipal building next Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.

A draft of the proposed budget shows a mill rate decrease and also lays out what ratepayers can expect to pay in taxes for 2018 based on where they live.

Compared to 2017, a home valued at $250,000 would see a tax decrease of $74 dollars in Mitchell, a decrease of $82 in both Grunthal and Blumenort, a decrease of $32 in Kleefeld, and a decrease of $28 in New Bothwell.

Ratepayers in rural areas of Hanover would see a tax decrease of $25 under the proposed budget.

The total capital budget for Hanover in 2018 sits at $18,965,176 under the proposal.

A full draft of the Hanover 2018 financial plan can be found at hanovermb.ca.
