The City of Mississauga’s Budget Committee is considering new and increased fees and charges for 2020 related to Transit Fares; Fire and Emergency Services; Planning; Library; Culture programs and rental rates; Transportation and Works; Recreation programs and rental rates; Parks, Forestry and Environment and General Fees and Charges. These revenue sources will help offset the cost of delivering these services, and include:
- MiWay Cash Fare (Single Adult) revised to encourage Presto migration from $3.75 to $4.00 representing an increase of $0.25 or 6.7 per cent. The Presto fare remains at $3.10.
- Fire: Fees charged for motor vehicle collisions and other specialty calls based on the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) fee schedule. The MTO raised their billable rates by 2.5 per cent. Fees for those incidents have been adjusted to reflect the increase.
- Animal Services: Dog/Puppy & Cat/Kitten Adoption Fee is moving to a flat fees of $243.25 dog / puppy adoption, $165.25 kitten adoption (0-3 years) and $81 cat adoption (3-7 years) to simplify the process
