Keep in mind, your property taxes must be current to enroll.

For more information on how to enroll, please contact the Corporate Services Department at 403-823-6300.

Council closes inequitable program


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

December 11 2019

 During the regular meeting of December 9th, Council moved to repeal Bylaw 19.16. This Bylaw provided incentives for the early payment of the current year's property taxes. Repealing this bylaw will provide an additional $5,000 in savings, which will be allocated to other municipal services.

In practice the prepayment rebate program could not be fully accessed by every tax payer therefore council chose to close this inequitable program

"The savings to the Town of Drumheller while small in relation to its overall budget, speaks to council's hope and aim to save every dollar in tough economic times" explained Mayor Heather Colberg.

"I would like to take this opportunity to remind our ratepayers of the option to pay property taxes through our monthly payment plan. Enrollment in this plan spreads the cost of your annual property taxes equally over the entire year as opposed to one lump sum due August 31st," outlined Barbara Miller, Deputy CAO, Director of Corporate Services.For additional information or to sign up, contact 403.823.1314.

Chair Yoga

Our Chair Yoga, formerly named 55+ Yoga, is a gentle beginner's class with the option to use a chair for stability or to do the poses seated rather than on the mat. This is a great way for older adults to get the wonderful health benefits of yoga. Staying seated means that even those with mobility issues or those who aren't flexible can safely do the poses. Yoga is an excellent way for the 55+ crowd to loosen & stretch painful muscles, reduce stress & improve circulation.

Yin Yoga

Known as the quiet practice, Yin Yoga focuses on the slow, patient, opening of the fascia layer of the body. The fascia is the connective tissue which underlies the skin, wraps the muscles & holds the bones together. Chronic tightness of these tissues cause stiffness & inflexibility, restricting mobility & energy flow. Yin postures are held longer giving the body an opportunity to open & release tension. This class is offered on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays.

Yin Yoga is suitable for most levels of students.
