Administrative history

The Innerkip Ratepayers Association was established in June 1977 by a group of citizens seeking advice on procedure to follow in dealing with the Innerkip drain. Once incorporated the goal of the Innerkip Ratepayers Association was to safeguard and promote the interests of tenants and owners of real property in Innerkip; co-ordinate the efforts of property owners and taxpayers; to foster community cohesiveness and maintain the integrity and stability of the neighbourhood; to be a citizens’ participation group for purposes of expressing views and advising municipal, provincial and federal governing bodies on maters of public interest and concern; and to solicit, receive and hold contributions of money and property for the objects of the Corporation.
