The provincial government is providing $3,650 in grants-in-lieu of property taxes to Lumby, and $102,427 to Vernon.
These funds are included in the approximately $18.2-million in grants to 63 communities across the province.
“Vernon and Lumby will use these funds to continue providing important local services to residents,” said Eric Foster, MLA for Vernon-Monashee.
“Our municipal governments keep our cities and towns running smoothly and continue to make our communities a great place to live.”
Grants-in-lieu are distributed annually and are payable on land owned by the provincial government, including courthouses, provincial government office buildings, and ambulance stations.
Properties eligible for grants-in-lieu of property taxes are determined by the Municipal Aid Act.
