RMA is seeking feedback from members on the Community Aggregate Payment Levy
RMA is currently seeking feedback from its members on the Community Aggregate Payment Levy
(CAPL). In 2005, amendments to the Municipal Government Act
(MGA) gave municipalities the ability to pass a CAPL bylaw. If enacted, the CAPL bylaw permits a municipal council to raise revenue by imposing a levy up to the regulated maximum rate of $0.40 per tonne of sand and gravel extracted. The intent behind the CAPL was to demonstrate the value of sand and gravel operations to local communities by municipalities directing the CAPL funds into general revenues and community projects such as parks and recreation facilities.
As the CAPL Regulation
is expiring in December 2022, the RMA is reaching out to members to inform engagement on potential changes. RMA is seeking member input to help shape RMA’s positions and ensure that the rural perspectives and municipal interests are taken into consideration in future discussions on CAPL changes.
The deadline to complete RMA’s Community Aggregate Payment Levy Member survey
is February 26, 2021
. Please contact RMA Policy Advisor Alex Mochid at alex@RMAlberta.com
if you have any questions.
