Property owners in Williams Lake and the surrounding area will receive their 2012 assessment notices in the next few days.
BC Assessment’s deputy assessor Darin Johnson said most homes in Williams Lake are remaining relatively stable in value compared to last year’s assessment roll and most home owners will see modest changes ranging between minus five per cent and plus five per cent. The City of Williams Lake’s assessment roll increased from $1.22 billion last year to $1.24 billion this year.
In Williams Lake, about $14.2 million in new growth came from $9.9 million in residential, $7,1 million in residential single family, $4.9 million in business and other, along with a net of -$537,225 in other changes among other classes, confirmed the City, stressing that the numbers are not set because people can still appeal their assessments. The revised assessment rolls are sent out in April.
