The regular installment of the current tax year due May 6th has been deferred to August 7th.
It is our sincerest hope that this helps those out that need a few extra months to figure things out financially. If you are not in need currently, please continue with your payments but know there is a cushion there if need be.
Council will determine the final tax bill due dates at a later meeting.
At present tax payments can be maid via cheque in the mail and through banking institutions. For more information contact the staff at the Township Office.
