Property Taxes Property tax billing occurs twice a year. Interim billing is sent out in February for March and June installment payments and Final billing is sent out in August for September and November installment payments. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the property owner from payment of taxes nor from penalty of late payment. If a tax bill for the wrong property is received, return it to the municipal office immediately. If a mortgage company is responsible for paying property taxes on your behalf, please forward the tax bill to them. If the property has changed ownership, send the bill to the new owner or return it to the municipal office, indicating who purchased the property. To avoid misdirected mail, please advise the municipal office of any changes in mailing addresses. www.mapleton.ca

PROPERTY ASSESSMENT The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) has the role of accurately valuing and classifying properties in Ontario in accordance with the Assessment Act and the regulations established by the Ontario Government. MPAC provides a range of services including the preparation of the annual assessment rolls for use by municipalities and the Province of Ontario to calculate property taxes and education taxes. When your municipality/local taxing authority sets property tax rates, your assessed value and classification are used to determine your property taxes. An assessment increase does not necessarily mean your taxes will increase. For questions about your property taxes, contact the municipality.
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT MPAC Visit www.mpac.ca or call 1.866.296.6722.
Municipal Water & Sewer Billing Water/sewer billing is currently issued in 2 month cycles. The water/sewer rates are based on the study done in June 2015. Customers pay a fixed monthly charge based on the size of their water meter and a volumetric charge based on the amount of water used each month. This blending of fixed and usage charges is intended to promote conservation by giving the customers control of their bills by reducing their monthly usage. View the current Fees and Charges By-law for detailed water/sewer rates at www.mapleton.ca Mapleton Payment options Pre-Authorized Payment: You can set up your tax payment and your water/ sewer billing on pre-authorized payment with the municipality. Billing can be set up for monthly withdrawal or a payment due date withdrawal. Cash, Cheque or Interac is accepted at Municipal Office 7275 Sideroad 16 Mail payment to P.O. Box 160 Drayton, ON N0G 1P0 Pay your bill at most Financial Institutions and through Online/Telephone banking.

BUILDING DEPARTMENT AND BY-LAW ENFORCEMENT
Why do you need a building permit? A building permit is your formal permission to begin construction or demolition. The Township of Mapleton Building Department must approve plans for any new structure, addition, or renovation. Building permits are necessary to ensure that zoning requirements, fire and structural safety standards are met as required by the Ontario Building Code. The Building Department promotes and assists with building development in keeping with Federal, Provincial, County and all other applicable law to ensure safe structures for our residents, businesses and visitors. Who is responsible for obtaining a building permit? The property owner is responsible for ensuring there is a building permit for the project they are undertaking. Contractors often apply and obtain permits as part of their contract with the property owner. When is a permit required? A permit may be required for: the construction, renovation or demolition of a building to change the use of a building the installation, alteration, extension, or repair of on-site sewage systems A permit is not required for a building occupying an area less than 10 square meters (107 ft²), unless it contains plumbing or is attached to another structure. All buildings must comply with the applicable setbacks of the zone in which the structure is located, as per the Township of Mapleton’s Zoning By-Law. Grand River Conservation Authority approval may also be required for construction projects. Property owners are encouraged to visit www.grandriver.ca to determine if any of their property falls within a GRCA regulated area.

CARBON MONOXIDE IS KNOWN AS ‘THE SILENT KILLER’
BECAUSE YOU CAN’T SEE IT, TASTE IT OR SMELL IT. The only way to detect the presence of the deadly gas is to install a carbon monoxide alarm. On October 15, 2014, the Ontario Government formally enacted a new law - The Hawkins-Gignac Act - making carbon monoxide alarms mandatory in all Ontario homes at risk of CO. This revision to the Ontario Fire Code, supersedes any existing municipal by-laws.
Now, no matter the age of your home, if you have any oil, propane or gas-burning appliances, furnace or water heater, a wood or gas fireplace, or an attached garage or carport, you must have working carbon monoxide alarms installed near sleeping areas.
ONTARIO’S NEW CO ALARM LAW BRINGS A CONSISTENT LEVEL OF PROTECTION TO ALL ONTARIANS.

TREES FOR MAPLETON Trees for Mapleton is helping farmers and rural landowners adapt to climate change and to develop a green infrastructure for the stability of food production and a healthy community. Wind breaks are a production tool, just like seed, soil, drainage and machinery. The Mapleton strategy includes wrapping every 100 acres with windscreens, buffering all waterways with trees, wrapping all forest fragments with windbreaks, planting shelterbelts around all farmsteads, creating habitat corridors, and planting living snow fences. The potential is for 5 million trees in Mapleton Township.
Increased farm income Ability to adapt to climate change Reduced carbon footprint Decreased road maintenance and salt Increased stability Positive stewardship Reduced topsoil loss and water run-off Higher crop yields Control of noise and odour pollution Increased property value

ROOTS OF MAPLETON TOWNSHIP
The Mapleton area was originally a part of the Queen’s Bush held by the government of Upper Canada as Clergy Reserve. The land in the Township was surveyed in two sections during the 1840s. The South-East section known as the former Peel Township was surveyed by Robert Kerr in 1843 and the NorthWest section known as the former Maryborough Township was surveyed by Patrick Callaghan in 1849. The land at that time was surveyed into farm lots of 200 acres. Most settlers claimed deeds to land parcels from 50 acres to 100 acres.
WHO WAS SETTLING IN MAPLETON?
People who emigrated from Britain and European countries made their way down the St Lawrence River and Lake Ontario to York, known today as Toronto. From York they travelled northwest to settle on unclaimed land which we live today. Before slavery was abolished in the United States many black slaves escaped to Canada. There was a thriving black farming community with two schools and a British Episcopal Church in the southern section of the Township before the land was surveyed.
WHAT DID MAPLETON LOOK LIKE?
As the early settlers made their roots and set up lives they quickly established various churches of their choice. Today we can only see the existence of many rural churches by the small abandoned cemeteries that have outlasted the buildings that once dotted the landscape. Able Moore and family on their Farm, Con 16 Lot 17, Peel Township, ca. 1878.

The community thrived and activity grew, many small hamlets spread across the Township. In these small hamlets there were tradesmen who supplied the necessities of life for the settlers. Each hamlet attracted blacksmiths, harness and wagon makers, carpenters and masons, shoemakers, tailors and dress makers, millers, and general store keepers. Mail was delivered by stage coach to most of the hamlets and kept people connected. Change came when the Grand Truck Railway was built through the Township in the early 1870â€™s. Stations were established at Alma, Goldstone, Drayton and Moorefield. The ease of shipping and receiving goods at these centres spelled the demise of most of the other hamlets. Small clusters of houses still show the sites of some of Mapletonâ€™s original hamlets.
