2. Seniors Property Tax Rebate Program Policy
Council adopted the amended Seniors Property Tax Rebate Program Policy No. 5103.

The Seniors Property Tax Rebate Program began in 2019 and aims to ensure certain levels of affordability by offering a small financial property tax rebate to low-income senior property owners.
