What do Taxes pay for?

The County’s tax revenue goes into a general revenue fund, which is used to pay for all operating expenses of the County of Forty Mile that are not covered by provincial grants, user fees or other revenue sources. Many of the services, such as police and fire protection, road construction and maintenance, mowing, and roadside spraying, are provided on the basis of County wide standards, and all citizens in every area of our community enjoy the benefits derived from these services.  Taxes also include the portion requisitioned by Alberta Education for schools, and seniors lodges which is clearly identified on your tax notice.
