City of Lacombe council highlights – April 8th, 2019

The next scheduled Regular Council Meeting is on April 23, 2019, at 5 p.m.

Financial Services

Line of Credit Bylaw 472

Council approved Bylaw 472, authorizing the establishment of a three-year, $3.5 million line of credit, after giving it three readings as presented.

Supplementary Tax Rate Bylaw 471

Council approved Bylaw 471, the City’s 2019 Supplementary Assessment Bylaw, after giving it three readings.

The City levies taxes twice a year. The general tax levy is applied in the spring, and is based on the annual assessments prepared as of December 31 of the previous year. This general tax levy ignores the portion of properties constructed and completed after December 31 of the previous year.

To account for these properties and ensure fairness and equity amongst all properties, the City also issues a supplementary tax levy in December of each year to account for improvements completed after December 31. This is an incremented tax and only applies to the period from completion to the end of the year.
