In collaboration with Sustainable Alternatives Consulting Inc, SBC undertook a study aimed at identifying the issues, challenges and potential opportunities for the use of Local Improvement Charges (LICs) for the industrial, commercial and institutional sectors.  The study included the provision of a legal opinion, a review of other jurisdictions’ use of LICs, and specific recommendations for municipalities to implement LICs.
