The City of Kamloops offers a comprehensive website with various information services for residents. Often as neighbours and homeowners it is common to have lots of questions about your home and your neighbourhood.
Many of us are already familiar with the Waste Wise App which provides more details about recycle vs non recycle items, and customized reminders of your garbage collection day. A little less known information web service is the Property Information Portal, with public access to many details such as:
- parcel description and location
- planning and zoning details – active applications, permits, and licences
- BC Assessment information – property tax comparisons (current vs previous year)
- property tax levies
- utility service charge history (one year)
- fire services
- residential collection schedule
- water meter, garbage container, and recycling container serial numbers
As a real estate agent, this property portal offers an abundance of information about the homes we are selling but also as a Home Owner I find myself returning over and over again. It is becoming easier and easier to dig out more details on your own than ever and want a great tool to have when you are just curious what type of development is being constructed down the road or that you, yourself never closed your hot tub permit!
