    Media Release: Concern for Impacts of Proposed Assessment Model Changes

    Media Release: Concern for Impacts of Proposed Assessment Model Changes

    August 6, 2020
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Concern for Impacts of Proposed Assessment Model Changes

    Greenview Reeve, Dale Smith 2020

    Earlier this year, the Provincial Government of Alberta began an assessment model review for regulated oil and gas properties, including wells and pipelines. While the Government of Alberta describes the review as a plan to “modernize” the assessment model and enhance the competitiveness of the oil and gas industry, Greenview is deeply concerned with the cost to municipalities, citing the viability of some municipal stakeholders will be jeopardized. 

    The Province is considering four different scenarios. The impacts of each of those scenarios would have a different financial impact on those with oil and gas assessments in their municipality. Greenview will perhaps see a 12% decrease in annual revenue, depending on which model the Government chooses to adopt.

    “Greenview remains optimistic that the Province will find a balance in this review; one that will incentivize the oil and gas industry and maintain sustainability within Municipal Government,” states Reeve Dale Smith.

    Long-term Forecasting

    Greenview has engaged Accurate Assessment to assist Administration in forecasting long-term impacts that the Province’s Assessment Model Review may have on our municipal tax revenue.  Administration and Council are concerned with the uncertainty this review is creating.  We are working to quickly gain knowledge on the long-term impacts the Government’s model review would cost Greenview in the immediate years and further out five and ten years and beyond.  “The need to provide municipal services to our residents and businesses, including the oil & gas sector, will not diminish.  We are just going to be expected to do the same with less; this simply doesn’t add up.  The only realistic option will be to provide less because we will have less,” says Chief Administrative Officer, Denise Thompson.

    Tri-Municipal Industrial Partnership Advancement Work to Commence in Fall of 2020

Currently, the time commitment required to advance this project is equal to a full-time position.  Council directed Administration to proceed with contracting a regionally located project manager for the TMIP to advance projects and steps that must be completed.
