Princeton’s new fees and services bylaw received first and second reading at a recent meeting.
Council heard that fees and charges provide the municipality with $1.515 million annually.
Council gave its initial approval to a three per cent increase in fees, covering everything from building permits to cemetery and campground fees, water, sewer and leisure rates. The increase amounts to $45,450 in increased municipal revenue.
The bylaw also clarifies charges for Freedom of Information requests. Staff time is only billable if the searching period takes more than three hours, but copying fees, shipping, and handling costs are eligible to be recovered and are included in the bylaw.
