Council got ‘schooled’ in property assessment and taxation.
 
Tanmar Consulting Inc. owner and president Mike Krim and IMAC Assessment owner and president Larry Horne provided an informative presentation at the Tuesday (Feb.13) meeting.
 
“We wanted to give them information on how property assessment works in Alberta, regulations and rules behind what we do and we hope they came away with some good information,” said Krim.
 
The presentation included rules that drive assessment, rules the assessor follows, the result of those rules and options available to council such as supplementary assessments.
 
“Mike Krim does an exceptional job. I would encourage people to go on the city’s webpage and view his part of the presentation. It really provides good information about assessment and taxation and how much they differ,” said mayor Gale Katchur.
 
Krim and Horne will return to council with a follow up presentation on April 10.
