UNA Fire Protection Services Cost Restructuring

The Province of British Columbia recently informed the UNA Board that we will now join other municipalities, including the UEL, in paying for fire protection services. The cost for fire protection services will be:

$500K payable in our budget year 2016-17.
$1M payable in our budget year 2017-18.
$1M+ payable in subsequent years.

The new fee is significant, however, the Board has a clear process to manage this issue. We are confident that we will manage the impact to our residents. The UNA and UBC are collaborating through the recently-established Joint Financial Task Force. The Task Force is exploring opportunities for the UNA to raise new revenues and to save costs without reducing resident service levels.

Current tax rates for residents (the combination of rural tax rate and service levy) will not be impacted.
