The Town of Tillsonburg is opposed to Oxford County’s plan to end a tax rebate program for vacant space.  Council agreed with the views expressed by a local business and the local chamber that the County is using that has impacts far beyond the problem it is intending to solve. It was noted that the change is an attempt to control building owners who abuse the system, but they are in the minority.  Most building owners want their buildings at full occupancy.  The program allows building owners to apply for a break on their property taxes for vacant space in their buildings.  Last year in Tillsonburg 31 properties were affected costing a total of $63,500 which was half of the dollars of the year before.

The budgeting process should become easier for staff in Thames Centre. Council has agreed to spend $40,000 for new software as well as an additional $3500 annually for updates and support.  During the last budget cycle, staff found that it was getting increasingly difficult to share information because the software was becoming obsolete and tech support was not solving many of the problems.  This new system will allow staff to transfer documents back and forth, make changes and edits and produce the document in a more timely fashion.  The new software should be installed shortly.

A proposed gravel pit on Trafalgar Street between Hunt Road and County Road 73 will have to wait for approval.  Thames Centre Council decided it needed more information before possibly giving the project the green light.  Council heard the pit would produce approximately 150,000 tonnes annually, with a lifespan of 10 to 15 years. With that amount of aggregate being produced it is estimated 25 trucks per day will be in and out of the pit.
