Lac La Biche County Applying to Become Specialized Municipality

Lac La Biche County has submitted an application to the Provincial government to become a specialized municipality.

If successful, the change in status will allow the county to keep a split mill rate for residential and non-residential properties when collecting tax, something they’d no longer be able to do after 2017 as a regular municipality. The designation would also allow them to expand their Urban Service Areas, which offer a lower tax rate to businesses.

There are currently five specialized municipalities in Alberta, The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo,  the Municipality of Jasper, Strathcona County, the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass and Mackenzie County.
