Public Notice - Roadways Special Tax 2022 Surplus

#Prince Albert #News

The City of Prince Albert hereby gives notice, pursuant to Section 102 of The Cities Act and the City’s Public Notice Bylaw No. 24 of 2015, of its intention to allocate the surplus revenue generated from the 2022 Roadways Special Tax and the unspent funds from the 2021 Roadways Paving Program.

A municipality may pass a special tax bylaw and Subsection 278(1) of the Cities Act provides that the use of the revenue raised by a special tax must be used for that specific service or purpose stated in the bylaw. Subsection 278(2) of the Cities Act then states that when there is excess revenue generated from the special tax (i.e. actual expenses are less than the actual revenue from the special tax), the City shall give public notice of the use to which it proposes to put the excess revenue. This requirement in subsection 278(2) will allow for transparency between the City and residents as to what their tax dollars are being used for.

Reason for Notice: The City will consider allocating the 2022 surplus from the Roadways Paving Program to fund costs in 2022 for the concrete sidewalk, curb and median rehabilitation program along with the remaining surplus to be spent in 2023 on roadway work.

Particulars of the bylaw will be considered at the following City Council meeting:


Monday, March 27, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.
Council Chamber, City Hall, 1084 Central Avenue, Prince Albert SK

If any person wishes to appear before City Council regarding this matter, please provide your submission to the City Clerk by 4:45 p.m. on Tuesday, March 21, 2023. Please visit or call the City Clerk’s Office at 306-953-4305 for further information on the requirements to appear.
