A year ago in the Times-Herald

Property assessments have been sent out and though some property values are going up more than 100 per cent, Moose Javians shouldn’t sweat it over any potential tax increase. That’s the message Garry McKay, Moose Jaw’s city manager, was stressing in a sit-down discussion with the Times-Herald Friday. “Every four years, it’s mandated by the province that there be a re-evaluation,” explained McKay. “A reassessment year is revenue neutral, meaning there are no additional taxes collected, but there is a shift … The message today is that property reassessment does not equal property taxes.” - March 9, 2014
