WATER RESTRICTIONS Beginning June 15 to September 15 we implemented our annual water restrictions to odd days and even days to match unit numbers. Watering by hand (including hose) is allowed on off days but no sprinklers. Soaker hoses are discouraged because their output is grossly underestimated. Please limit car & driveway washing. Thank you.

If you dont appeal in January 2010 then you are out of luck. You can ONLY appeal the Assessment - NOT the Tax Notice when it arrives later. DO NOT CALL THE MATSQUI BAND OFFICE – THEY CANNOT HELP YOU.
