MD council to help fund Macleod arena upgrades

The MD of Willow Creek will assess a special levy on Fort Macleod recreation area ratepayers for four years to provide $100,000 for upgrades to the Fort Macleod arena.
Council reviewed a tax report prepared by administration Nov. 9 on the amount of revenue generated from a levy over three, four or five years.
The impact to a large rancher, whose assessment is $488,670, would be $77.21 per year for three years; $58.16 per year for four years; and $46.92 per year for five years.
The impact to a large Hutterian Brethren Colony, whose assessment is $4,341,780, would be $686.01 per year for three years; $516.68 per year for four years; and $416.81 per year for five years.
The impact to a home in Moon River Estates with an assessed value of $334,101, would be $52.78 per year for three years; $39.75 per year for four years; and $32.07 per year for five years.
The impact to an industry, whose assessment is $7,398,980, would be $1,169.01 per year for three years; $880.48 per year for four years; and $710.31 per year for five years.
The Fort Macleod recreation area spans the southern portion of the municipality all the way to Township Road 100.
The project includes new washrooms, handicap access and a new concession area to serve both the hockey and curling arenas.
Council passed a resolution to provide $100,000 for the project in 2012, should it go ahead, and recover the cost by a special levy to be assessed in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
