Managing Our Taxes

The Reality

Property taxes in Markham and York Region are high and taxpayers deserve better value for their money.

The Challenge

We need to maintain high quality City services for all Markham residents.

The Opportunity

Examine City spending priorities annually:

  • Champion “zero based” budgeting, requiring regular justification for all spending, rather than annual percentage increases
