Reinstatement of Municipal Interest Penalties/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passed a By-law to waive penalties and interest for late payments incurred from the date of passing until the By-law is repealed.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.
