MPAC ASSESSMENTS MAILED TO ALL LEASEHOLDERS

Ontario’s Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is in the process of mailing Assessment Notices to leaseholders.  We are aware that the assessed values of cottages are wildly inconsistent and in some cases cottages are being assessed at “zero” value.

RCA President, Dr David Colby, met with our lawyer Mr David Kirwin over this matter earlier this week.  Mr Kirwin has received a number of assessments already and he is researching the legal basis for the MNR’s efforts to add this new charge onto our existing lease fees.

At best this is a complicated situation that may have a direct impact on our efforts to secure tenure in the park beyond 2017.

At this point please give us a few more days to determine how to proceed from here.  We also request that if your assessment is $0.00 or over $200,000 please advise ASAP.

Brian K. French,
RCA Vice-President,
on behalf of Dr Dave & Your Executive
