- Amendments to the Town’s procedural by-law that governs the proceedings of Committees and Council to permit electronic participation in meetings (i.e. conference call or video conference) during emergencies;
- A recommendation to waive the normal penalty imposed on unpaid 2020 Interim taxes after the tax due date for a two-month period ending May 31, 2020; and
- A recommendation to delegate special authority to the Town’s Chief Administrative Officer during the declared emergency to enable the Town of Bracebridge to efficiently, effectively and immediately manage the fluidity of the current emergency situation and to maintain the daily business operations of the Town of Bracebridge.
