2022 Future of Policing & Capital Planning Two-Part SurveyTell us your priorities!
Starting July 7, 2021, the Town of Lamont is inviting residents and business owners to take a short two-part survey about the future of Policing and Capital Planning. The survey will be live from July 7 to August 9, 2021 and take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
What is the reason for the survey?
Like many municipalities, the Town of Lamont, faces a constant struggle to maintain aging infrastructure, such as stormwater systems, roads, buildings, and other municipal assets, while also planning new services and systems to meet community needs.
Council and Administration know from last year’s budget survey, that community safety and infrastructure improvements are a top priority for town ratepayers. The survey responses will help determine what is important to ratepayers to develop the five-year capital plan for 2022 and beyond.
Your responses will be kept strictly confidential, and the results of the survey will not be used in any way that will allow anyone to identify you.
Your participation is voluntary, and you can discontinue your participation at any time.
To tell us your priorities, please click HERE to take the survey.Results of the survey will be posted on this page in the fall.
Thank you for participating, your input will be instrumental in this process.

The average municipal tax bill is comprised of three elements:
Municipal Property Tax
Municipal property tax rates are determined by the programs, services, and infrastructure needs of residents and businesses. Tax Rates are applied to the assessed value of properties within the municipalities.
Education Property Tax
Every year the province calculates, based on assessment value, the amount each municipality must contribute towards the public education system. Municipalities collect the education property tax from rate payers and then forward it to the province for a deposit into the Alberta School Foundation Fund.
Lamont County Seniors Foundation
the Town receives a requisition from the Lamont County Seniors Foundation which provides affordable seniors housing. Under the Alberta Housing Act, the Town is required to collect these funds from the municipality property owners, similar to the education requisition.
