An open house has been scheduled for March 19 for individuals and business owners to ask questions concerning the city property assessment notices they recently received in the mail.

All city property owners received assessment notices in February, and the totals this year reflect the impact of 2009 being a revaluation year.

Next Thursday's open house is a come and go event from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with individuals confused with the data on the assessment notices having a chance to directly ask City Assessor Michael Kehler or other finance staff members for insight on your assessment.

Michael Kehler, City Assessor, indicated that "revaluation to assessment of properties occurs every four years to every property in the Province of Saskatchewan. As such, all Swift Current property owners will see change in their assessment which will reflect values from a base date of June 30th, 2002 to the new base date of June 30th, 2006. The new assessments are based on Swift Current sales data within the years 2003-2006".

Residents and business owners are reminded that there is always an opportunity to appeal the new assessments if so desired. Assessment appeal forms are also be included with the mail-outs. Any property owner that is considering an appeal is reminded that appeals can be made solely on the basis of a possible mistake in the assessment of the property not on the level of taxes.

Any property owner wishing to appeal has until April 20, 2009 to send notification of appeal along with a 25$ cheque to: City of Swift Current, 177 1st Ave. N.E., Swift Current, SK, S9H 3A6. Attention: Secretary of the Swift Current Board of Revision.
