FVRD is holding parcel tax roll review panel on Nov. 12

Hearing being held to ensure ‘accuracy and integrity’ of FVRD property listings on tax rolls

The Fraser Valley Regional District is holding a parcel tax roll review panel hearing on the morning of Nov. 12 to ensure the accuracy and integrity of properties listed on the FVRD parcel tax rolls.

Service area participants in Electoral Areas C, D and H were notified about the hearing relevant to six bylaws: Cultus Lake Integrated Water Supply and Distribution, South Cultus Lake Sewage Treatment, Lake Errock Water System Capital Construction, and the Popkum Sewer Service.

Anyone wishing to give feedback at the hearing must give written notice to FVRD be received no later than 10 am on Tuesday, Nov. 10.
