When revenues are factored in, the expected net municipal cost is $3,604,773, up more than 12.3 per cent over the 2005 budget.Those numbers include increased land ambulance funding from the province, which was recently announced provincewide, of $410,723 for this area.
EMS costs are part of the joint services shared by the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville, Brockville, Prescott and Gananoque, so the costs are split between those four governments. An expected hike in the joint services budget is responsible, in part, for bringing Brockville's expected average tax rate increase to eight per cent.
