Open Letter from Council to the Community – May 6, 2020

We would like to sincerely thank those in the community who continue to physically distance, support others or work on the front lines. You are making a difference in our collective recovery.

Over the past several weeks, the City also has been looking ahead to what we can do to support the community’s recovery, not only right now but in the months and years to come. We want to ensure that our efforts provide targeted and meaningful support to those most in need. For the short-term, we’re offering some financial relief to property owners by delaying utility and tax payment deadlines, among other measures. For the long-term, we’re investigating how best to support a broad cross-section of the community with a preliminary $5-million investment in our new Community Support and Recovery Plan (CSRP). Read the full letter here.
