The Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) will be adding further clarification on how their commercial property assessments work during Moose Jaw City Council’s meeting on Monday night. 

During the city council meeting on Jan. 9, it was standing room only as small commercial property owners expressed their frustration over how the property assessments ultimately led to significant tax increases.  

The letter from SAMA to the city clarifies the role of the agency and the city as well as the process that is undertaken when coming up with commercial property assessments.  

Also on the agenda, city council will receive a response from New Rock Development in regards to a presentation on Oct. 24 by representatives of the condo board at The Estates at Creekstone to resolve draining issues.  

According to New Rock, the condo board did not contact the development company before addressing city council and they are willing to work with the condo board to address the drainage issues.  

City council will also get an update on the enhanced patrol pilot program and a report will come forward about a grace period for discount transit passes. Mayor Clive Tolley, who was absent for the first meeting of the new year, will be giving his New Year’s address as well.  

You can view the entire agenda on the City of Moose Jaw’s website.
