Bonnyville residents needed for Assessment Review Board

The Town of Bonnyville is looking for interested citizens to sit on a quasi-judicial Assessment Review Board (ARB).

The Bonnyville ARB is an impartial tribunal that hears formal complaints from property and business owners who disagree with the assessed values of their property as determined by the Town of Bonnyville’s assessor.

The board operates independently from the Town of Bonnyville. In the case of a complaint, hearings are typically scheduled in the fall, where a panel of board members will hear information from the complainant and the assessor, then make an official decision. The time commitment for hearings varies each year, as it depends on the number of hearings scheduled. When it is time for a hearing, all the documents are prepared by an ARB clerk prior to the hearings, and hearing packages will be given to the board members.

There are a minimum of one position available for both the Local (residential) ARB and the Composite (commercial) ARB. Both positions are for a two-year term.

To qualify, applicants must be a resident of the Town of Bonnyville, be at least 18 years of age and must attend 7, mandatory half day training sessions. A per diem and reimbursement for expenses occurred will be paid for these training sessions in accordance with Town Bylaws and Policies.

The deadline for interested individuals to apply is Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at 12:00 Noon.

Please send a letter of interest to the undersigned:

Mr. Bill Rogers
Chief Administrative Officer
Town of Bonnyville
