Municipal Support for Economic Development
The Town of Bouctouche has the lowest property taxes in southeastern New Brunswick. In recent years, the Municipal Council has taken steps to stabilize residential and commercial property taxes. Through wise management of public funds, the Municipal Council has made Bouctouche the envy of surrounding municipalities with a 4% (an almost negligible) debt ratio. The Town now uses public funds to enhance quality of life and promote economic development while maintaining a comfortable reserve fund, placing it in an excellent position to benefit from provincial and federal programs that require a municipal contribution.
