Mayor's Declaration 

The Ontario government declared a provincial emergency on March 17 to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the province. I would like to ask each resident of Alfred and Plantagenet Township to remain calm, but vigilant in his or her choices for leaving their home.

The directives issued by the Ontario public health authorities are very clear, it is crucial to practise social isolation in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19. If you have to go out, wash your hands before you leave and when you return home.

Last Tuesday, our council took steps to mitigate the financial impact of COVID-19 on our citizens. It has been resolved that the deadlines for the payment of municipal taxes, water taxes, sewer taxes are maintained, but that no interest or penalty will be incurred before June 1, 2020. The minutes of this meeting will be posted on our website where you will also find regular updates on our services and the COVID-19.

I would like to highlight the dedication of all the employees of the township who work hard to ensure continuity in municipal services. Despite our reduced staff, we strive to maintain our safe paths, to monitor the floods in our area ... This is why I appeal to your patience and your indulgence if you experience a certain delay in our responses to your many requests.

I would also like to thank many of you who are doing what you can to help seniors and others in our community. Finally, I encourage everyone to support our local businesses as much as possible and to use their delivery and ordering services online or by phone.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
