New ideas are always being brought before town council and at Monday nights Committee of the Whole meeting the town of The Pas discussed the possibility of having a Tipping Fee Incentive Program here in town.
A Tipping Fee Incentive Program works by having the town reimburse 50 percent of the cost of tipping fees after having a building demolished and rebuilt on the same property within two years of the date of the demolition.
Chief Administrative Officer Randi Salamanowicz says other communities have tipping incentive programs and that it would be advantageous for The Pas. The hope of having this program is to help with the demolition of old buildings in The Pas and initiate new construction. The program will be discussed again at a future meeting.
