The $60-million Bioenergy Producer Program funding will keep operations going for 31 Alberta bioenergy producers while a third-party adviser and other stakeholders advise government on new policy options to support the industry.

Alberta's bioenergy industry currently powers the equivalent of 200,000 homes using wood pellets, biogas and liquid biofuels. A report on policy options is expected by the end of March.

The Spruce Grove & District Chamber of Commerce submitted policy to the Alberta Chambers of Commerce in 2014 "Wood recycling: turning waste problem into a resource solution".
The chamber is now seeing some significant results from this policy.

Tax Assessments   If you own property in Spruce Grove, you will be receiving your 2017  assessment notice  
in the mail this month.

This assessment notice will show the market value of your property, which will be used to calculate the annual taxes on that property. This process, which follows guidelines established by the provincial government, helps ensure taxes are distributed in a fair and equitable way where owners of property with similar market values pay similar amounts of property taxes.
If you have questions about your 2017 assessment notice, you can attend the Assessment Open House on March 8 from 1-7 p.m. in council chambers on the third floor of City Hall. An assessor will be available to review and discuss your property assessment.
