Fees, Charges and Penalties

Tax Penalty 

Utilities and Garbage Disposal Fee Discounts

To be eligible for the 5% discount, the utility charges and garbage disposal fee must be paid by the March due date.


Tax Penalties

A 5% penalty will apply to outstanding current taxes unpaid after the July tax due date, and a further 5% after the September due date. 

These penalties are a requirement of the Community Charter.  The City has no authority to either waive or modify these penalty amounts.  A payment that is one day late is subject to the full amount of the penalty.
