Water:  Azu, Bear Lake and Blackburn*

Sewer:  Bendixon, Buckhorn, Summit Lake (Adams Road and Tallus Road), Tabor Lake and West Lake.

*Blackburn is an exception as it is within the City of Prince George, however, the Regional District operates the water system.

Property Taxes

By legislation, regional districts do not issue tax notices or collect property taxes.  The Province of BC's Surveyor of Taxes office issues tax notices for rural areas.  Payment of property taxes for properties in the unincorporated areas of the Regional District must be made to the Province.  The Surveyor of Taxes maintains the tax records for rural properties.

Please note that a single mill tax rate is not used to determine property taxes as each individual property receives varying services depending on its location within the Regional District, therefore, multiple rates are used to determine the amount of property taxes to be levied.
