In 2017, the City retained CORVUS Business Advisors to provide an update to the current Off-site Levy system. This review was a result of the updates that were expected in the Municipal Government Act (the MGA) that would include Fire Halls, Libraries, Police Stations, and Recreation facilities. The Off-site Levy updates included a historic review, rate updates and a model that the City can utilize for future updates. The draft report was completed in November of 2017 and included a presentation to Council in December 2017 as well as a public presentation held in February 2018. The Off-site levy Bylaw was advertise for two continuous weeks after first reading took place on 26 March 2018 as required by the MGA.  Both the report from CORVUS Business Advisors and the current Bylaw C-788-11 are attached for review.
