Applications for Tax Exemption approved and denied

At a city council meeting on Monday, council approved applications for two properties, and denied the application for one.

The city approved the applications from the United Pentecostal Church, and from the Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation of Prince Rupert.

The city approved these applications as churches are considered ‘Adult Non-Profit’ organizations.

The application for Pure North S’Energy Foundation was denied as “Pure North is a non-profit health care service only available to its membership or CNRL employees.”

Pure North did offer a free service originally, but has since started charging a fee that the City sees as a price to pay for membership.
