Low Flow Toilet Rebate Program
The Village of Cremona offers a Utility Rebate Program to assist residents with homes built prior to 2008 in achieving a higher level of potable water conservation or replacement of high flow toilets (6 or more litres) with a low flow or dual flush toilet.
It is estimated that as much as 30 percent of water consumed in the home is flushed down the toilet. Based on CMHC Household Guide to Water Efficiency, an average family replacing an older high flow toilet with a 6 litre model can achieve water savings of more than 12,000 litres per year.
- Rebates are credited to a Village of Cremona Utility account, which must be in good standing.
- Properties eligible to participate in the Program must be on the Village's metered water system.
- All rebates are subject to the availability of funds.
Commercial-business properties and Institutional properties (schools, hospitals, seniors' lodges, etc.) are not eligible for participation in this program.
Taxes and Budget
Assessments are conducted in January of each year with taxes due the 30th of June. Your Assessment and Tax Notice include a Municipal Levy and a School Levy, both of which make up your Total Property Taxes. If you disagree with your assessment, you may appeal to the Village Office (see the back of your Assessment Tax Notice).
If you like, you can sign up for our Tax Installment Payment Plan. This allows you to pay your taxes in monthly installments. For more information, please Contact the Village Office.

Road & Snowfall Maintenance
Our Public Works staff work hard year round to ensure that roadways and alleys are maintained and kept accessible to all residents at all times of the year. Street Sweeping and Lane Grading take place in Spring and Fall. Town staff do the downtown area and the primary and collector streets first, and then move on to residential areas. Signs are posted the day before on streets to be swept.
