City gets provincial property tax grant

The Provincial Government will provide Fort St. John and Fort Nelson with more than $140,000 in grants.

The grants will come in lieu of property taxes in 2010. Fort St. John will receive $103,604 and the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality will receive $40,212.

Grants-in-lieu of property taxes are distributed as a way to compensate municipalities for services that benefited government properties.

The grants are based on the assessed value of provincially-owned office buildings and other properties in each municipality. To save time, money and paper, the funds are distributed electronically.
