Ottawa City Council is laying out its 2022 budget timeline, and says it doesn't want to approve a municipal tax rate higher than 3 per cent.

As it stands, council members are hoping to see the city-wide levy, which funds most city services, increase by 2.6 per cent, and the transit levy increase by 4.5 per cent, for an overall 3 per cent tax rate. 

The increase would see the average urban homeowner pay an additional $119 per year, while the average rural homeowner would pay an additional $91 per year. 

The city's draft budget for 2022 will be tabled at a special city council meeting on Wednesday, November 3, 2021. Council is expecting to adopt the final budget on Wednesday, December 8.
