Please be advised that interest will not be added on April 1st if your taxes have not been paid by the due date.  Once Council is able to meet and change the by-law we will let our residents know when taxes should be paid to avoid interest.

Curbside Collection:  Out of concern for their employees and families, our curbside collection contractor has advised that effective immediately all solid waste placed out for cubside collection must be securely tied in plastic bags.  No loose material will be collected at this time.  Also, they will not be sorting through recycling, it will be left at the curb if it isn't sorted properly or is contaminated.  Thank you for your support and cooperation during this concerning time.
