Thank you for joining the conversation regarding the proposed 2023 User Fees and Charges!

The Township of Puslinch (Township) depends on revenue from property taxes and user fees and charges to provide quality Township services and programs. Many of the Township’s services are funded by property taxes, however in some cases the Township charges a direct user fee to the individual/organization benefitting from the service.

The Township and the County of Wellington (County) are responsible for providing different services. Township user fees and charges are to support Township services.
