With the provincial re-open plan for playgrounds in effect June 12th, the Town would like to remind everyone that when enjoying the outdoors during the COVID-19 pandemic, you should still practice social distancing and avoid group gatherings in parks and playgrounds.View the full provincial playground guidelines for more information.

According to Public Health Official guidelines:

  • Individuals who are sick should stay home.
  • A physical distance of two metres should be maintained between people not from the same household or extended household. 
  • Individuals should wash their hands before and after using parks and playgrounds.
  • Avoid overcrowding. Individual groups must not exceed the restrictions on public gatherings. 

 

Utilities & Taxes

At the special council meeting held on March 24, 2020, in an effort to help alleviate some strain on community members, Council passed a motion to waive monthly interest on all past due utility accounts effective immediately and through to September 30, 2020. Regular monthly interest accrual of 2% will resume on October 1, 2020 for all outstanding balances at that time.

Additionally, as an additional measure of assisting residents, Council passed a motion to extend the 2020 property tax payment deadline to December 31, 2020. As a result, the October, November, and December interest charges of 1.5% are waived for the 2020 taxation year. Regular interest accrual for all outstanding property tax balances will resume January 1, 2021.

Regular payments can still be made via online banking, e-transfers, or by dropping a cheque in the mail slot at the town office. Cash will only be accepted if it is in a sealed envelope and has clear identification on it.
