Email to Okanagan Assessment Office
Here is my email to the Okanagan Region of BC Assessment regarding MLA Eric Foster’s constituency office in Vernon:
In addition to my complaint below, and pursuant to Section 39 of the Assessment Act, I am requesting the Property Assessment Review Panel do the following:
1) Compel Eric Foster to attend the hearing as a witness. Mr. Foster leases the building at 3209 31 Avenue in Vernon and he approved and directed its renovation. His presence at the hearing is required so he can answer questions about renovations, lease payments and other matters directly related to the market value of the property.
2) Order Mr. Eric Foster to disclose all documents in his possession or control that are related to renovations, changes or improvements at 3209 31 Avenue in Vernon. I require copies of these documents prior to the hearing so I can present evidence regarding the actual market value of this property.
Please note that the failure of the Property Assessment Review Panel to issue these orders will, in all likelihood, create grounds for an appeal.
