The village of Beiseker has a cash flow problem caused by two things;
- We still have a huge amount of back taxes owing! Unpaid taxes have a huge impact on a small village like ours! The tens of thousands of dollars owing could improve many things in the village, if it were available to us. It is very frustrating to have unpaved streets, broken sidewalks, and other issues within the village - and not having the funds available to address them!
- The second problem actually comes from the provincial government. As I've mentioned before, we collect the education portion of the property tax on their behalf. They in turn withdraw this money from our bank account. And therein lies the problem. The province withdraws the total amount, regardless of how much is still owing to the village by rate payers or has not been collected, yet. We have no imput - They just take it!
