The Land Conservancy has out-standing tax bills payable to the District of Sooke in the amount of $58,287.06, as of July 31, 2012.</p><p>On Aug. 1, TLC prepared a media release which states, We would like to reassure our members, donors, vol-unteers, partners and sup-porters TLC has every intention of paying off our debts. Currently, our Board of Directors and staff are working on a Sustainabil-ity Plan for the organiza-tion as we move forward and our property taxes are included in this plan. For a brief outline of our plan, please visit our message to TLC Members and Donors. A more detailed version will be presented at our Annual General Meeting on Sept 15, 2012.</p><p>The audited financial statements for The Land Conservancy state there is the existence of a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt about the Societys ability to continue as a going concern. </p><p>The society has a signifi-cant working capital defi-ciency of $3,531,262, an unre-stricted deficit of $2,926,520 and a decrease in net cash flows of $172,515 for the year ended April 30, 2011, according to the Consoli-dated Financial Statements for TLC The Land Conser-</p><p>vancy of British Columbia, dated April 30, 2011.</p><p> TLC is a non-profit that protects important habitat for plants, animals and natu-ral communities as well as properties with historical, cultural, scientific, scenic or compatible recreational value.</p><p>Dave Gawley, the District of Sookes Acting Director of Finance, said that in cases of non-payment of taxes (delinquent), properties can go to a tax sale, but there is a one year grace period before the property is actu-ally eligible to be sold. TLC currently owes the District of Sooke $4,102.54 in delin-quent taxes plus interest, arrears including interest at $27,899.40; penalties on cur-rent at $2,389.55 and current at $23,895.57 for the grand total of $58,287.06. TLC only has to pay the $4.102.54 to prevent the property from going to a tax sale. </p><p>According to Alastair Craighead, TLC board chari-man, the non-profit will be paying the District of Sooke $4,102.54 by deadline. </p><p>For this year, we have to pay about $4,000 to avoid any difficulties, he said. Well be paying the taxes before the 24th of Septem-ber. </p><p>If the property were to go to a tax sale then TLC would be obligated to pay the total amount within the one year grace period, Sept. 24, 2012 to Sept. 23, 2013. Any pay-ments made will go to the interest owing first then to the delinquent tax itself.</p><p>Brittany Lee photo</p><p>The Sirens, a local old time music band, played during the end of lunch hour at the Sooke Fine Arts Show on Friday, Aug. 3.

That grant will defi-nitely help with that side of stuff. </p><p>Currently items are stored along out-dated shelving. Large items are currently stacked on top of one another, while smaller items are cluttered together in spaces without draw-ers.</p><p>Boyco said some of the work that will be done include building structures to increase surface area to better house large items, and the implementation of compartments for smaller items. </p><p>Items will also be moved to their appro-priate places to ensure theyre properly cata-logued, and stored in areas favourable to their preservation. </p><p>Work on the muse-ums storage areas are expected to begin and be completed this fall, which will require addi-tional part-time work-ers. </p><p>Once a week for 14 to 16 weeks, well have a larger group of eight or 10 people who will work with the project leaders to go through the material and help identify it. Then even-tually move the materi-als as new shelving gets in. </p><p>The improvement of storage facilities will </p><p>coincide with a larger project, funded by about $30,000 of inter-nal funds made avail-able through a change in the museums tax </p><p>levy.
