Didsbury council passed the town's 2020 tax rate bylaw on Tuesday, May 26th.

Mayor Rhonda Hunter has the details.

She adds this is a very difficult economic time in Alberta, so council thought it was important to bring in 3.3 per cent less revenue from taxes to give residents some tax relief.

Mayor Hunter notes Didsbury's playgrounds, skatepark and basketball court have recently been reopened. Coming up on Monday, June 1st the town office and the campground will reopen.
