For Vanderhoof residents, property taxes are due July 2 by 4:30 p.m. and no extensions are being provided to homeowners.
Lori Egli, CAO of the district, did not respond to a question about the district’s plan if a large number of residents couldn’t pay their property taxes on time.
Some major cities in B.C. including Vancouver and Surrey have extended property tax deadlines to September. However, communities close to Vanderhoof such as Fort St. James and Prince George have not provided any further extensions.
