The Wood Buffalo Recovery Committee (WBRC) will review options for residential taxation relief and bring forward a recommendation to Council.
This development follows Coun. Keith McGrath’s removal of a Notice of Motion from the Council meeting on July 12 that would have proposed a series of residential taxation relief efforts. The options will now be referred to the WBRC for further review.
“This is being done so we can get this right for our neighbours, families and friends most affected by the wildfire,” said Coun. Keith McGrath. “The intent to help our residents that need it most remains a top priority and this will allow us to propose a solid recommendation to Council that is rooted in what will work best for the entire community.”
As part of its review, the WBRC will explore potential opportunities to have any residential taxation relief covered under the Government of Alberta’s Disaster Recovery Program.
