News Release:

 

The Town of Ingersoll is thrilled to be recognized at the 2019 Canadian
International Autoshow in the Chevrolet exhibit. “Proudly Made in
Ingersoll, Ontario” is prominently displayed on every Chevrolet Equinox at
the Autoshow. Ingersoll is the home of the GM CAMI Assembly Plant where the
Chevrolet Equinox is proudly built to a high quality of standard that our
residents and General Motors work to achieve.

 

The Town of Ingersoll has evolved over the years from its agricultural
roots to a recognized leading industrial and creative community.
Ingersoll’s location has served it well being in the heart of Southwestern
Ontario on major highways, train lines, and close to international airports
and shipping ports. Our people are hardworking, dedicated, and community
minded. The Town is experiencing unprecedented growth recently and the
future is very bright for our Town, residents, and the GM CAMI Assembly
Plant.

 

“We’re a GM Town. CAMI is a big part of our Town and has been for the past
30 years” said Ted Comiskey, Mayor of Ingersoll. “We feel a great sense of
pride having General Motors as such a large part of our Town and seeing the
thousands of Chevrolet Equinox vehicles head off to market.”

Town of Ingersoll - Information Release
February 8th 2019


2019 Operating Budget Approved


At a special Council meeting on February 7th Council approved the operating budget for 2019

.
The approval came after four dedicated budget meetings that began in early December.


The approved budget strikes a balance between maintaining the services in place that citizens have come to expect, constructing 6.5 million dollars of new capital infrastructure, no new debt, and with a reasonable tax levy increase of 2.33 percent. This levy increase is only marginally higher than the 2018 consumer price index of 2.27 percent.


Estimates provided by the Treasurer, indicate that a house priced at $218,500, the median for the Town of Ingersoll, will see an increase of $34 dollars for 2019. This is only an estimate at this time as the County of Oxford is yet to establish the tax ratios that will ultimately determine the tax rates for 2019.


Mayor Comiskey, speaking on behalf of Council said the following


“Over the four budget meetings, open to the public, there was very good debate amongst the members of Council. Not everyone got everything that they were looking for, but in the end a reasonable balance was struck. Council has brought in a responsible budget with a levy increase of 2.33 percent just above the rate of inflation. This budget maintains the high level of services the Town provides. The Town continues to invest in the Town’s capital infrastructure, 6.5 million for 2019 and meet its long term asset management obligations for the community, while not incurring any new borrowing.”


Council thanked Staff for their work leading up to the meetings and for their efforts in presenting a budget that linked to its established strategic priorities while respecting Council’s wish to limit increases to near inflationary levels.
