OFF-SITE LEVY in the Crowsnest Pass
Good news if you paid an off-site levy in the Crowsnest Pass during the period of 2001 to 2011 you may be eligible for a refund. Council recently passed a policy to refund this regressive, anti development form of taxation.
Check out the following:
If you feel you qualify or have questions contact the municipal office.
My opinion of an off-site levy is based on the fact that we has a community are not growing in the sense that the number of people utilizing our Infrastructure is not increasing. We are being forced to replace Infrastructure because it is old, antiquated and does not meet today's standards. Not because we have a population that is 20% higher than it was 20 years ago.
Communities that have tremendous growth impose off site levies because they are growing rapidly they have more people flushing the toilets, turning on the taps, driving on the roads.
