There will be no municipal utility bills until July.
Council voted unanimously this afternoon that charges, rates, and fees for the distribution, collection and treatment of solid waste, water and sanitary sewage not be applied for May and June 2016.
Any outstanding amounts for those two months will not be applied as well.
The reasoning is to allow the residents and businesses of the region to re-establish their operations and residency prior to the Municipality resuming billing activities.
The two month period will also provide Administration with the time necessary to determine whether further considerations are required. Further changes would be provided for Council consideration at a later date if required.
