URGENT: The County's response to Provincial Government's Assessment Review for Oil & Gas
July 31, 2020

URGENT: Proposed changes by the Government of Alberta to have disastrous consequences for the County of Vermilion River.


The Government of Alberta is proposing changes to the assessment model for regulated properties such as oil wells and pipelines, which will significantly reduce the County of Vermilion River's tax revenue.  The County of Vermilion River Council and Administration are extremely concerned about the serious impacts of this decision because it will mean an increase in residential property tax, reduction of services, or combination of both to make up for this lost revenue.  THIS WILL IMPACT YOU and we need your help to advocate our concerns.


Please see the County of Vermilion River's response to the Provincial Government Assessment Review for Oil & Gas from Reeve Dale Swyripa.
