User Fees

You pay a "user fee" for some services each time you choose to use them. User fees can help the Township keep the cost of property taxes down by making sure that services which only a few people choose to use are not paid for by everyone.

Each year the Township looks at all of its user fees and the cost of delivering services to decide if any changes need to be made. Some fees are adjusted automatically on January 1st to reflect the rate of inflation. Other fees change based on direction from Council.

Current User Fees Schedule

The current User Fee schedule is available in PDF format as well.
