Services are grouped into two categories discounted services and non- <br />discounted services. The Act requires that a discount of 10% be applied to the growth-related <br />capital costs for discounted services when calculating development charge rates. Non- <br />discounted services refer to services for which the legislation does not require a reduction. <br />The following table shows which services within the City of Kitchener fit into the discounted <br />and non-discounted categories: <br />CategoryServices within Category <br />Discounted ServicesGeneral Government Studies <br />Parking <br />Indoor Recreation <br />Outdoor Recreation <br />Cemeteries <br />Library <br />*** This information is available in accessible formats upon request. *** <br />Please call 519-741-2345 or TTY 1-866-969-9994 for assistance. <br />IF3 - 1 <br />
