Council approves exemptions for penalty and interest charges until April 30

Posted by Corporate Communications on Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

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.”
