Farmers in the Peace area will soon be able to have their say in how farm properties are assessed by the Ministry of Small Business and Revenue.
Starting next week, the ministry will be holding consultation meetings across the province, asking for input from the public on how they can streamline and improve the farm assessment process.
The consultations are the result of a Ministry of Small Business and Revenue decision late last year to conduct a comprehensive review of BC’s farm assessment policies. The review hopes to address concerns about the policies that were raised by farmers and their communities.
Panel members include Karen Goodings, chair of the Peace River Regional District. She’ll be heading down to the review kickoff in Saanich on September 16th.
The tour’s stop in the Peace region will be October 22nd in Dawson Creek. More information is available at www.farmassessmentreview.ca.
