A provincial assessment agency will likely begin work in Creighton this summer.
The Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency plans to assess properties in Creighton later this year. The agency audits the existing assessed value of homes and properties and confirms or questions municipal assessment information.
Last year, a group from SAMA visited council as a delegation to answer questions related to an upcoming assessment of buildings and properties in Creighton.
However, according to Creighton Mayor Bruce Fidler, no movement or discussions between the town and SAMA have been held since that meeting.
Fidler said those discussions will likely pick up heading into spring and summer months and that the assessment will come later this year.
Hudbay plans to extend the number of Creighton-area land leases they have in from five to seven and will build a number of berms on the new area. The existing leases cover land currently occupied by the company’s tailings site. Vegetation considerations will be a condition in the lease, but it is unclear what form those considerations may take.
Last month, the company renewed its land lease for five parcels of land owned by the town of Creighton.
Council carried the recommendation from committee.
