Gov’t apologizes for property assessment mistakes

Service New Brunswick admits it made mistakes on 2,400 property assessments and issued an apology yesterday. The Telegraph-Journal reports the government says new bills will be sent to homeowners by April 1st. It attributes the mistakes to human error…but also that it was less than half as many mistakes as last year.

Given the mistakes, however, Conservative Leader Blaine Higgs thinks the appeal deadline needs to be pushed back a month.
