Municipal Council Approves Changes to Payments

INVERNESS COUNTY, NS – The Municipality of the County of Inverness Council approved a series of motions at the April 9, 2020 Regular Council meeting that will assist in alleviating the financial burden on the businesses and residents of Inverness County. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses have been significantly impacted by the loss of revenues, and residents may be facing lay-offs and loss of income. The motions resulted in the following changes:

  1. Interest will not be applied to overdue property tax accounts for the months of March, April and May 2020. All interest applied prior to these dates will remain on overdue property tax accounts.
  2. Interest will not be applied to overdue water utility accounts for the months of March, April and May 2020. Any interest previously applied to overdue accounts will remain on the water utility accounts.
  3. The water utility bills to be mailed out in April 2020 for the billing period of January 1st to March 31st, 2020 will have an extended due date of an additional thirty (30) days.

“The Municipality understands that some people are facing extra challenges during this time,” said Betty Ann MacQuarrie, Warden of the Municipality of the County of Inverness. “Municipal Council and staff hope that this can relieve some worries residents may have.”

To pay tax or water bills, residents can call 902-787-2274 or email whitney.macdonald@invernesscounty.ca.
