Prince George, B.C. – The City of Prince George will be taking the next step to see if there is support to add another 106 Hart Highlands properties to the City’s sewer system.
In a report to Council this evening, staff indicate there is favourable interest in such a project, which early estimates peg at between $2.3 and $2.8 million dollars, but a formal petition process will have to be conducted to ensure there is support from at least 50% of the property owners representing at least 50% of the total assessed values in the area.
As has been the case in recent upgrades in this area of the City, the residents will be responsible for paying their portion of the cost. That means each residential property could expect to pay $22 thousand to $27 thousand dollars over 20 years in a special tax levy.
If the petition produces the necessary approval, the work on the project could start in 2018.
