Reinstatement of Penalties and Interest Charges - At the start of the COVID-19 emergency, an emergency Council meeting was held on March 25th, 2020 to discuss measures the Town would be undertaking to address various Town matters in response to the emergency. Council passed a By-law to waive penalties and interest for late payments incurred from the date of passing until the By-law is repealed. During the first 2021 Budget meeting on November 6th, 2020, Council discussed reinstating interest/penalty charges due to the significant financial losses experienced by the Town in 2020 and the estimated impact to revenues in 2021. Council voted in favour of repealing By-law 32-2020 and therefore,  penalty and interest charges on tax, water and other fees/charges owing to the Town will be reinstated effective January 1st, 2021.

In 2012, Ontario’s Ministry of Infrastructure released a guide titled Building Together, Guide for Municipal Asset Management Plans. This guide forms part of a comprehensive strategy called the Municipal Infrastructure Investment Initiative (MIII) which aims to develop a strong and cooperative relationship between municipalities and the Province of Ontario to address the significant challenges that currently face our deteriorating infrastructure.  The Town of Carleton Place’s AMP provides a detailed examination of all of the major assets owned by the Town including:
- Sewer and Water Systems
- Transportation
- Stormwater Systems
- Streetlights and Traffic Signals
- Fleet
- Facilities and Property
 
This Asset Management Plan not only addresses sustaining the existing infrastructure over a period of 100 years, it also outlines future plans for each asset and specifically explains expansion plans for assets to meet demands when required.
