Creighton Town Council met this past Wednesday via a phone conference to discuss the latest business. Alderman Eastman moved that for this year due to COVID-19 the town would extend the tax discounts. Current tax payments made in the month of January to October fifth will receive a five percent discount, payments made in November will get a four percent discount and current tax payments made in December receive a three percent discount. That motion was carried.
He also moved that for the months of March, April and May of this year no late penalty for utility arrears will be charged. That motion was also carried.
Alderman Rainville reported that the town has donated one thousand dollars to the Lords Bounty Food Bank to assist during the pandemic. Mayor Bruce Fidler reported he has been involved in a lot of conference calls concentrating on dealing with COVID-19. Otherwise it’s been relatively quiet and he’s hoping things well ease up before too long.
