SYDNEY, NS – Cape Breton Regional Municipality will not be taking action on overdue tax and water bills for at least 90 days.
“We understand that many taxpayers are concerned about the future, about employment insecurity and the ability to pay their tax and water bills,” said Chief Financial Officer Jennifer Campbell.
“For the next 90 days, CBRM is deferring tax sale procedure and disconnection of water utility customers for nonpayment,” said Campbell.
“Any further deferral will be reassessed in June. We are also committed to being flexible, extending payment due dates, and providing options for residential and small business customers affected by protection measures undertaken by the Province of Nova Scotia.”
