Beaumont, AB - Residents and businesses experiencing financial difficulties can delay City of Beaumont water, wastewater and garbage collection bill and property tax payments.
“Beaumont city council is taking these actions to support our residents and businesses,” says Mayor John Stewart. “Whether people lost their jobs or their incomes were cut, we want to do our part to help ease their financial burden during this trying time.”
Residents can delay paying their city water, wastewater and garbage collection bill until September 30, 2020 without penalty or service cut off. Bills will continue to be sent, but residents who do not pay them now can arrange a flexible repayment schedule with the city later.
Homeowners and businesses can also delay paying their property taxes to September 30, 2020 with no penalty. Those on the monthly property tax plan can also choose to withdraw from it and instead pay a lump sum of the remainder of their taxes by September 30.
The city’s measures complement programs and resources implemented by the Alberta government to support Albertans and Alberta businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City of Beaumont and its contractors have plans in place to ensure residents continue to receive essential services, such as fire protection, policing and garbage collection. For more details, visit the city’s COVID-19 web page at www.beaumont.ab.ca/covid19.
Residents and businesses can learn more about how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and supports available on the Government of Alberta and Government of Canada websites.
