The city of Cold Lake has four positions on it’s Assessment Review Board that it’s looking to fill, and it’s taking applications.
The ARB is used to hear complaints from property and business owners who disagree with the values on their property determined by the city. The board will act impartially, separate from the city of Cold Lake. No experience is necessary and the city will cover expenses and a per-diem during a mandatory training session in Edmonton April 24th to the 27th.
“The board doesn’t meet that often, and this is an excellent chance for residents to take part in the property assessment process,” said Mayor Craig Copeland. “There’s no experience necessary, and we cover the cost of the training session.”
If a complaint arises, the board would conduct a hearing, typically in the fall. To qualify, applicants must be a resident of Cold Lake and 18 years of age or older.
“We’re not asking people to commit a lot of time throughout the year to this board, other than the mandatory training session,” said Copeland. “Hearings are usually done within a single day, once a year, if there are any to be had at all.”
