What Are Local Improvements & Local Improvement Charges?
A local improvement is a new or extension to an existing municipal water, sewer, storm water (curb & gutter) systems, or street improvement. A Local Improvement Charge (LIC) is the cost to the property owner receiving benefit from the improvement.
LICs have long been used by municipalities to help cover the costs of infrastructure improvements deemed to benefit a specific neighbourhood or area. In Antigonish County we have embraced the approach of “user pay” in many areas of municipal service such as street lights, fire protection, road improvements, and water and sewer systems. This approach is particularly appropriate for rural municipalities where service levels vary among communities and residents.
LICs are used as a means of directly connecting the costs of capital improvements to those who enjoy them. This practice reflects the reality we face: costs are rising and municipalities require revenue beyond general taxation and infrastructure funding from other levels of government to support growth.
