Council has approved an exemption until April 30, 2020 to penalty and interest charges for tax, water and wastewater payments due to residents’ limitations accessing City Hall during the COVID-19 related closure. This decision was also made to help alleviate the financial burden that may be prevalent for the Port Colborne community because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“During these unprecedented times there is unfortunately not a lot the municipality can do to help relieve financial burdens experienced by our residents, businesses, and property owners, but we can do this for those in our community who need a little extra help right now,” said Mayor Bill Steele. “Staff will also be providing further recommendations to Council as necessary should there be a need for additional exemptions.”
