The current Transportation Off-Site Levy Bylaw (#C-1197) was adopted by City Council on September 22, 2008. The bylaw included the following clause:
“11.3. If no update to Schedule “D” is made by Council by March 31 in a given year, the amount of the Transportation Off-site Levy rates shall be automatically adjusted on March 31 of that year by the annual percentage change in the Consumer Price Index for the previous calendar year. The adjustment shall be made to the previous years Transportation Off-site Levy as adjusted pursuant to this section.”
The current Transportation System Levy is $61,000.48 per gross hectare. The current "Schedule C" for New Two Lane Rural Roadway Unit Costs is $1,151.11/l.m.
The annual percent change in the Consumer Price Index for the province of Alberta as determined by Statistics Canada between January 2018 and January 2019 was published as 1.2% (Statistics Canada Website).
- Therefore, the new Transportation Levy amount is to be set at $61,732.49
- There, the new Road Unit Costs per l.m. is set at $1,164.92.
