A number of High River residents are asking the town for leniency on their property taxes for the year.
Taxes were originally due on June 30, but due to the flooding have been postponed until further notice.
Mayor Emile Blokland says council is very aware of the adjustments that need to be made to property taxes but says it's not a cut and dry issue.
"It's going to take a lot of consideration to make sure we do it right and that it's fair to all residents," says Blokland.
Blokland adds that all properties will have the assessment reduced to some extent.
"Some might only be marginally but some also see an assessment that drops significantly."
But with the reduction in assessments, the financial health of the community may also be affected.
"The town will have to ask the province to step in and assist us and provide us with a cushion for those taxes that we alleviate."
