The City of Steinbach is reminding home and property owners that the 2020 property taxes are due no later than September 30, 2020.
Tax bills issued this year total about $32.6 million. Approximately 47 percent of this amount fund municipal programs including the City-s summer beautification program, street maintenance and snow clearing functions. It also funds a variety of projects, including:
- Kroeker Avenue reconstruction;
- New curbs and asphalt overlay on Valerie Lane, Maplewood Street, Parkview Crescent, Parkside Place, and George Place;
- Overhead street lighting along PTH 12 South, from south of Chrysler Gate past Madison Drive intersection;
- Replacement of aging vehicles and equipment.
The remaining 53 percent of the annual tax levy is forwarded to the Province of Manitoba and the Hanover School Division to fund various school system projects and programs.
Comparatively, Steinbach continues to be among the lowest property tax rates in the province.
