Assessment Review Board (ARB)

Responsibilities


Formed pursuant to the Municipal Government Act, the ARB is a semi-judicial board formed to hear appeals on assessment matters: if a property owner feels their property's assessed value is in error, they request a hearing with the ARB, which has the power to uphold or modify that value. Decisions of the ARB cannot be appealed to Council: an application for a hearing would have to be made to the provincial Municipal Government Board. Formal training is needed to be a member.
