Permissive Tax Exemption for the Cranbrook Golf Club – referred to administration for review and report to the first regular meeting in January 2012

All Committee appointments of Councillors were adopted and can be viewed at:
First Second and Third readings were given to Waterworks Amendment Bylaw 3734, Sewer Rates Amendment Bylaw 3735 and Sewer Frontage Tax Amendment Bylaw 3736.
All these bylaws determine an increase in rates for these services. To view the new rates go the link above.
Councillor Cross asked whether residents who are not hooked up to city services must pay these rates. Response from administration stated that frontage tax must be paid if services run in front of the property even if they are not hooked up. Utility fees are not paid if the services are not hooked up.
Councillor Warner commented he did not realise some water metering exists in the city.
