PORT HARDY—Do you have an interest in property assessment issues? Do you want to learn more about property value, classification and exemptions and help make decisions about property assessment complaints (appeals)?

The Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development is seeking residents in the Port Hardy area to sit on a local Property Assessment Review Panel.

Property Assessment Review Panels investigate and deliver rulings on complaints regarding the assessed value, classification and exemptions assigned to properties by BC Assessment, said Steve Feldman, Property Assessment Review Panel administrator.

Panel members serve on a part-time basis and must be available to attend hearings scheduled during the annual assessment review period from Feb. 1 to March 15. Positions are paid and initial appointments are typically for a two-year period.

Training materials are provided upon appointment to the three-member panels.
