ER HDTONGAETR EGBLROWM SEINENGIRYOUR COUNCIL KEEPING YOU CONNECTEDGBEAUMONT COMMUNIQUÉVILLE DE / TOWN OFBEAUMONTMay 2017 | www.beaumont.ab.caProperty Assessments and Tax Notices Beaumont’s 2017 mill rate has been set. Council adopted the 2017 Mill Rate Bylaw which reflects an average municipal tax increase of 2.551 per cent. The average assessment value for residential properties in 2017 is $426,299. Based on this average, a homeowner would see an increase in property taxes of $10.48 per month. This number is effective for people who are not on the Tax Installment Plan. The annual combined assessments and tax notices will be mailed by May 31. Taxes are due June 30, with a 6 per cent penalty applied on July 1. We appreciate your assistance in making payment in a timely manner. The 2016 tax adjustment takes into consideration Beaumont’s operations; the demands from residents on certain levels of municipal services; the impact of major projects; the requirements of a growing community; and the need to remain competitive in the Capital Region. Council strives to seek a balance between the current and future needs of residents and our community. In order to determine the assessment valueof your home, assessors gather actual sales data from July 2016 to set your assessed value. Beaumont’s total assessment is based on the market value of individual properties, so your taxes may be higher or lower than the average depending on your home’s value. Beaumont will host an open house where you can meet and talk with the property assessor, Tuesday June 14 from 3 to 6 pm in Council Chambers. If you are unable to attend the open house and you have questions about your assessment, contact Alexandra at 780929-3306. As always, if you have questions or concerns you can contact town staff or your elected officials at the numbers below, or go to the website for email addresses: www.beaumont. ab.ca/council.

The streets that will be renewed are: Beauridge • 5500 and 5600 blocks of 54 Street • 5600 block of 53 Street • 5300, 5400, and 5600 blocks of 56 Ave • 5600 block of 55 Street • 5400, and 5500 blocks of 57 Ave • 5600 block of 56 Street Beau Meadow • 4300 block cul-de-sac on 43 Street north of 43 Ave Centre-Ville • 5000, 5100, 5200 block on 49 Ave Construction is slated to begin after the May long weekend (weather dependent, of course) and run approximately three months. “There will be minor disturbances for the duration of the project,” says Project Manager Keaton Seaby. “Crews will work to minimize delays. At the end of the project, residents will have fresh concrete sidewalks, gutters and asphalt. We thank people in advance for their patience. ” The total project budget is $1.39 million; however, with the current economic times we expect to see very competitive bids and we expect to come in under budget.
