No Tax Rate Increase for Kings County Residents
Municipality of the County of Kings
Residential and commercial property tax rates will remain the same for Kings County following the adoption of the 2015/16 operating and capital budgets by Municipal Council on April 14th, 2015. The budget process included thirteen public meetings where priorities were presented and discussed. The ultimate goals were to maintain an open and transparent process; maintain no increase to the tax rate; get the best value for each tax dollar; and to align the budget with strategic priorities. This is the sixth consecutive year that there has been no increase to the tax rate for Kings County residents. Increases to tax bills are still possible due to rising assessment values of properties as determined by the Provincial Valuation Services Corporation.

Kings County Announces Corporate Reorganization
Municipality of the County of Kings
The Municipality of the County of Kings is announcing a revised corporate structure which will better align senior management with the strategic priorities of the Municipality. The reorganization will see a reduction in the number of managers from eight to three. Two former management positions have been eliminated and the remainder have been re-titled as supervisors and will follow a new reporting structure.
All municipal staff will now report to one of the following four areas:
• Office of the CAO
• Manager of Community Development
• Manager of Engineering, Public Works, Lands & Park Services
• Manager of Finance & Information Technology Services

CAO Tom MacEwan said, “Our team is now organized around our core areas to ensure that everyone is working together in the best interests of the residents of Kings County”. He further emphasized that these changes would promote a streamlined decision making process and a faster turnaround time for projects that were previously handled by multiple departments. “We are always assessing our internal structure and service delivery to ensure we can be as responsive as possible to the residents and businesses in our region”.

The reorganization is effective immediately and will be evaluated by the management team on an ongoing basis to determine if other future changes can be implemented to improve municipal operations.
