Farm Deferral Program
On January 9, 2006 Council adopted a resolution to defer taxes on 'farmland' (FT) as identified by MPAC. Staff circulated a survey (Appendix A) to all property owners with a FT assessment to determine if the deferral was still wanted. 551 surveys were mailed on November 25th with a requested return date of December 22, 2011. Staff received 331 responses or 60%. 52% of respondents wanted to continue the deferral program and 48% wanted to discontinue/no preference to the program.
