Assessment program with Sylvan okayed

By Kevin Elliott


Bloomfield Township will again provide assessing services to the city of Sylvan Lake for the next three years, under a contract approved Wednesday, September 28, by the Bloomfield Township Board of Trustees.


The township board unanimously approved the 3.5-year contract to provide assessing services for Sylvan Lake at the amount of $27,500 annually. The contract includes annual increases for service matching inflation or cost of living increases, which more than cover the expense to the township, said Darrin Kraatz, Bloomfield Township Director of Assessing.


“We have had a contract with Sylvan Lake for several years,” Kraatz said. “We do their assessing services, and always have given of an overview of how things are going.”


Kraatz said the township has assigned one person to handle all of Sylvan Lake’s assessing work, which doesn’t equate to a full-time position. He said the assessor assigned to Sylvan Lake also performs other activities on behalf of the township.


The contract was approved by Sylvan Lake’s governing board on September 14.
