Another truck rolls over

No one was hurt when a tanker-trailer rolled on the Ingraham Trail on Wednesday evening. It happened near the Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road to the diamond mines, according to Harris Beaulieu, spokesperson for the Department of Transportation. He said the truck was hauling diesel when its wheels caught the shoulder and it rolled. Beaulieu said a small leak was contained before any fuel spilled onto the ground. It is at least the eighth trucking incident so far this winter in and around Yellowknife, including four rollovers and four fires.

Property tax due

Income taxes might not be due until next month, but property owners and rate-payers must pay city's 2017 Interim Tax Levy by 5 p.m. on March 31. Accounts not paid in full by the end of the month will be charged interest. Property taxes account for close to three quarters of the city's operating revenue and the Yellowknife school districts.
