COVID-19 Financial Relief
The COVID-19 situation is unprecedented, and this will require a cooperative effort from all three levels of government to not only address the health and safety of our residents, but to also provide some financial relief as well.
The provincial government has announced arrangements made with both electrical and natural gas providers to defer payments for a period of 90 days. With a call upon Municipalities to consider implementing similar programs.
In response to this the Town of Olds is implementing the following measures:
Implementation of a 90-day deferral of payments for Town Utility bills. Utility bills will continue to be sent out monthly, but no penalties will incur. Penalties will not be applied until July 2, 2020. Residents must call into the Town Office to request this deferral. This will allow us to further help by dividing the payback (of the 90-day deferral) over a six (6) month (penalty free) period. During this 90-day period we will not transfer any amounts to taxes or shutoff any residence.
Due date extension. Tax notices will be levied in mid-May as usual but with a due date of August 31, 2020 as opposed to June 30. Arrears penalties will still be applied throughout this period, but no current penalties will incur until September 1, 2020.
No penalties will incur until July 2, 2020
