The Pas Town Council discussed a new special service levy for the town of The Pas at Monday night’s Committee of the Whole meeting.
The proposed special service levy would pull policing costs out of the general mill rate and distribute them equally across the community. The town has been working on this levy for the past three years and they are still working on perfecting the levy. However, some members of the public have not shown approval for this proposed levy.
Town council has asked for more information on this proposed service levy and they will be meeting again to review the information and discuss the levy further. According to Councilor Crystal Krost it is expected that some changes will be made to the levy before it is passed such as pulling the commercial aspect out of the levy and possibly having different tiers of levies.
There will also be a public hearing on March 28th that will give the public the chance to voice their concerns or ask any questions that they have in regards to the proposed service levy.
Corrections: An Earlier version of this story said that the public hear would be held on March 26th when it is actually set to take place on March 28th
