    How do I make a noise complaint about a dog

    Heather asked 6 days ago

    To file a noise concern please contact Service Oshawa at 905-436-3311 who will assign an Officer to investigate. Community members are encouraged to try to resolve a noise complaint in advance by speaking with your neighbour. They may be unaware that the noise can be heard beyond their property and is disturbing you. Depending on the situation, you may also be asked to complete a noise log. Visit www.Oshawa.ca/noise to learn more.

    Partnership and Anchour Grants have been recognized as a grant system that has serious flaws. Access to needed funding for many major institutions has been denied. This is planned to be changed in the coming year Will this bring fairness to institutions such as the Automotive Museum.... St Vincent's Kitchen ...and others who are major economic and social benefactors to our city ? Will these taxpaying charitable institutions who have been denied grants of more then $5000 be allowed to get needed funding from our City or remain underfunded ?

    GregJ asked 16 days ago

    A review of these programs determined that the programs were difficult to apply for, the awarding of grants was inconsistent, and the program itself required substantial staff resources and Council review and needed modernization.  An update to the programs was developed and will be considered by the Finance Committee in 2021 which may result in changes to the programs offered.

    There wasn't anywhere on the budget feedback form for open answers. I wanted to say that property taxes can't go up anymore. They are TOO high. Tax businesses and developers. Make developers pay for road widening, infrastructure, parks and playgrounds. With all the high-end new builds in Oshawa in the last 10 years our property taxes should be DECREASING! Find ways to work smarter - don't just keep increasing property taxes. Excessive property taxes are forcing good homeowners out of Oshawa and into Clarington and Northumberland.

    Thank you for taking the time to reach out. Your feedback is valuable to us and your priority comments regarding property taxes have been shared with staff. 

    The City of Oshawa is part of a two-tier government system and collects property taxes on behalf of the City, the Regional Municipality of Durham and the Province for local school boards. For every dollar collected, approximately 41 cents is allocated to the Region and 18 cents to local school boards – the City keeps only 41 cents.

    There are 2 components to property taxes:

    First, your home’s assessed value as determined by MPAC – the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation

    Second, the total tax rate, as determined by the City of Oshawa, the Region of Durham, and the Province.

    The formula is:

    The assessed value of your home multiplied by the Total Tax Rate

    This will give you the Total of your Property Taxes

    We encourage you to participate in our virtual open house on Tuesday, September 14. The virtual Budget Open House will begin at 6:30 p.m. with opening remarks from Mayor Carter and Finance Committee Chair Gray, followed by a brief overview and education session on the 2022 City budget process by Finance Services. Following the presentation, City staff look forward to learning your 2022 City budget priorities. For details on how to join or to learn more please visit ConnectOshawa.ca/Budget2022
