Court of Revision

The Court of Revision hears appeals on assessments - the portion of the cost of a proposed drainage work to be collected, as taxes, from the landowner. To appeal to the Court of Revision, a landowner assessed for the drainage works must give a written notice of appeal to the clerk of the initiating municipality at least ten days before the first sitting of the Court.  The notice must state which land is assessed too high or too low or which land has not had proper consideration of its use (examples are agricultural land assessed as non-agricultural, subdivided land assessed as agricultural land and land used for intensive agriculture such as greenhouses assessed at the same rate as other agricultural land).
A decision of the Court of Revision can be appealed to the Ontario Drainage Tribunal..
