The RM of Kelsey held a public hearing at the Royal Canadian Legion to allow RM residents to voice their concerns or their opposition towards a special service proposal for road maintenance.

 

These services are currently provided by the RM with the rural mill rate and the proposal was to move some of the costs of these services from the mill rate into a special service levy. If the proposed levy becomes a reality it will be based on an equal amount per role number and the rate will be $285 dollars.

 

One concern that some rate payers had was that there are some lower assessed properties that pay a lot less than $285 dollars for these services.

 

Reeve Rod Berezowecki says the municipality is trying to bring some fairness back to the tax system; and the goal is to have RM residents pay a tax rate that better indentifies the level of service that they receive.

 

This matter will be talked about at this evening’s council meeting and they will discuss what they heard from residents at the hearing and whether or not they will go forward with the proposed service levy.
